Ralph Albert Blakelock by Abraham A Davidson( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While Ralph Albert Blakelock (1847-1919) appears in every major survey of American art, no current books exist on his life and work. In this comprehensive study, Abraham Davidson argues convincingly that Blakelock is one of the greatest American painters of the nineteenth century, whose art ranges from the "romantic visionary" school reminiscent of Albert Pinkham Ryder to, later in his tragic life, a more realistic, physically experimental style often touching on abstraction. Davidson examines the haunting influences of Blakelock's visits to the American West and the Caribbean while a young man, reflected in his strikingly original landscapes. He also explores Blakelock's connections to various American movements, including the Hudson River School, the Barbizon School, and Tonalism, and discusses the works he produced while institutionalized for schizophrenia for much of the last twenty years of his life. More than 150 black-and-white and color illustrations reproduce many of Blakelock's paintings for the first time. Drawing upon previously inaccessible biographical materials, including family letters and the artist's travel notes, Davidson pays special attention to the pre- and post-1880s and 1890s periods of Blakelock's work, practically unknown until this study

What's Wrong with the Survivor Benefit Plan?( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Since its inception in 1972, the Survivor Benefit Plan (SBP) has been one of the most controversial pieces of military personnel legislation ever enacted by the Congress. While the Department of Defense has supported it as a valuable military benefit, it has been characterized by others as a plan primarily benefiting officers or even a gimmick using retired pay to reduce the national deficit. Regardless of one's opinion, the facts speak clearly. Only about one-half of all retirees elect to participate; among enlisted personnel the percentage is even lower. Using these statistics as a starting point, this article explains why participation has lagged and summarizes service member perceptions regarding the SBP, advances reasons for those perceptions, and then compares the SBP to private sector insurance plans. The paper concludes that better service member understanding of the real value of the SBP would increase participation in the plan
