Old mistresses women, art and ideology by Rozsika Parker ( Book )
33 editions published between 1981 and 2013 in English and held by 2,326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
How was it possible, by the later twentieth century, to have erased women as artists from art history so comprehensively that the idea of 'the artist' was exclusively masculine? Why was this erasure more radical in the twentieth century than ever before? Why is everything that compromises greatness in art coded as 'feminine'? Has the feminist critique of Art History history yet effected real change? With a new Preface by Griselda Pollock, this new edition of a truly groundbreaking book offers a radical challenge to a women-free Art History. Parker and Pollock's critique of Art History's sexism
Digital and other virtualities renegotiating the image by Antony Bryant ( )
7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
If virtuality is being celebrated as heralding a radically new era, rich with new possibilities and futures hitherto unimagined through cybernetics, networking and digitalizaton, such claims are also being viewed with deep scepticism and countered by renewed interest in the groundedness and referentiality of the concept of the index. In this transdisciplinary book, major artists, filmmakers, film theorists, philosophers, literary critics, information theorists and cultural analysts examine the twists and turns of the contesting terms of virtuality and indexicality in contemporary cultural theo
Bluebeard's legacy death and secrets from Bartók to Hitchcock by Griselda Pollock ( )
9 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The tale of the serial wife-murderer Bluebeard, his defiant, and surviving, final wife, a bloodied key and a secret chamber of horrors, has fascinated writers, composers, artists and film-makers throughout modern times. It is a unique story that dares to disclose and explore masculine violence: the homme fatal. This transdisciplinary book explores the deep appeal of the Bluebeard story for twentieth-century culture. Its major focus is how the modernist imagination used the elements of Bluebearda??s tale to explore masculinitya??s anxieties in the face of the emerging demands of women for redef
The sacred and the feminine imagination and sexual difference by Griselda Pollock ( )
11 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The notion of a special intimacy between 'the feminine and the sacred' has received significant attention since the publication of Julia Kristeva and Catherine Clement's famous ecumenical "Conversation" of the same name which focused on the relationship between meaning and the body at whose interface the feminine is positioned. Brought to the wider public as the 'sacred feminine', it has also made its mark on popular culture. Taking up the debate and moving beyond anthropology or theology, writers from varied ethnic, geo-cultural and religious perspectives here join with secular cult
Vision and difference : femininity, feminism, and histories of art by Griselda Pollock ( Book )
30 editions published between 1987 and 2007 in English and held by 1,180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The publication of Vision and Difference marked a milestone in the development of modern art history. Its introduction of a feminist perspective into this largely male-oriented discipline made shockwaves that are still felt forcefully today. Drawing upon rich resources of feminist cultural analysis hitherto little applied to the visual arts, Griselda Pollock offers concrete historical analyses of key moments in the formation of modern culture to reveal the sexual politics at the heart of modernist art. Crucially, she not only provides a feminist re-reading of the work of canonical male Impressionist and Pre-Raphaelite artists including Edgar Degas and Dante Gabriel Rossetti, but also re-inserts into art history their female contemporaries - women artists such as Berthe Morisot and Mary Cassatt. Casting her critical eye over the contemporary art scene, Pollock discusses the work of women artists such as Mary Kelly and Yve Lomax, highlighting the problems of working in a culture where the feminine is still defined as the object of the male gaze. Now published with a new introduction by Griselda Pollock, Vision and Difference remains as powerful and as essential reading as ever for all those seeking not only to understand the history of the feminine in art but also to develop new strategies for representation for the future." -- Back cover

Mary Cassatt by Griselda Pollock ( Book )
14 editions published between 1980 and 1985 in English and Undetermined and held by 775 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Born into the male-dominated world of nineteenth-century, middle-class Pennsylvania society, Mary Cassatt became a feminist and turned what was a lady's accomplishment into a profession as a radical painter, working in Paris and exhibiting with the Impressionists. Degas, Manet, Gauguin and Pissaro, among others, knew and admired her work, and yet, since her death in 1926, Cassatt has received little critical acclaim, while her importance, both personally as an individual artist and historically within the evolution of Impressionism, has larged been obscured. The efforts of the feminist movement in the last decade, however, have stimulated public and critical interest in Mary Cassat. Griselda Pollock examines the reasons for the unjust neglect of one of America's outstanding artistic talents, gauging the wide variety of influences which shaped her career, from her commitment in her early oils and pastels to both the techniques of the Old Masters and to modernist ideas through to her later interest in the methods of Japanese printmaking."--Jacket
Differencing the canon : feminist desire and the writing of art's histories by Griselda Pollock ( Book )
11 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and held by 703 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Differencing the Canon moves between feminist re-readings of the canonical modern masters - Van Gogh, Toulouse-Lautrec and Manet - and the 'canonical' artists of feminist art history, Artemisia Gentileschi and Mary Cassatt. Pollock avoids both an unnuanced critique of masculine canons and an unquestioning celebration of women artists. She draws on psychoanalysis and deconstruction to examine the project of reading for 'inscriptions in the feminine', and asks what the signs of difference might be in art made by an artist who is 'a woman'

Generations and geographies in the visual arts : feminist readings by Griselda Pollock ( Book )
13 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In Generations and Geographies, the challenge of contemporary feminist theory encounters the provocation of the visual arts made by women in the twentieth century. The major issue is difference: sexual, cultural and social. Generations points to the singularity of each artist's creative negotiation of time and historical and political circumstance; Geographies calls attention to the significance of place, location and cultural diversity, connecting issues of sexuality to those of nationality, imperialism, migration, diaspora and genocide
Millet by Jean François Millet ( Book )
9 editions published between 1977 and 1980 in English and held by 605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Born a peasant in Normandy, Jean-François Millet was acclaimed during his lifetime as the greatest 'peasant painter' of the nineteenth century. Although the classical solidity of his figures looked back to Michelangelo, his admirers and disciples included such revolutionary Post-Impressionists as Gauguin, Seurat and van Gogh. Neglected by subsequent generations, Millet has recently won an increasingly appreciative public, especially following the retrospective exhibitions of his work held in Paris and London in 1975-76"--Book cover

Museums after modernism : strategies of engagement by Griselda Pollock ( Book )
22 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Museums After Modernism is a diverse set of essays that addresses the urgent question of how the museum can be a public institution, a focus for critical debate and knowledge in an era when museums and galleries are increasingly being subsumed into national heritage and civic tourist industries through blockbusters and managed education programs. The book uniquely brings together artists, curators, art historians, and users to explore the strategies for non-canonical and creative fostering of the museum as a public space for dialogue and transformation in the postcolonial era. Combining theoretical reflections on the histories of the museum with recent case studies, "Museums After Modernism" goes beyond current museology and reconsiders the strategies of engagement with what the museum could be after modernism."--Book cover

Avant-garde gambits, 1888-1893 : gender and the color of art history by Griselda Pollock ( Book )
9 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the late 1880s Gauguin, Van Gogh and Bernard, fledgling members of the subculture we call the avant-garde, abandoned Paris, the capital of modernity, to seek out in rural Brittany, Provence - and later in Tahiti - what Van Gogh called "a purer nature of the countryside." Griselda Pollock challenges art history's usual interpretations of this search in the distant and exotic regions by arguing that these artists were cultural colonizers. They exhibited the modern tourist's attachment to home - modern Paris and its art worlds - while being fascinated by what they imagined was a pre-modern "other." Through a thorough textual and social reading of Gauguin's 1892 painting of his Tahitian wife, Manao Tupapau, the author proposes a new theory about the avant-garde as a series of gambits, a game of reference, deference and difference. This painting refers and defers to Manet's Olympia (1863), a notorious avant-garde image of prostitution in the modern city. Where it was seen to differ was in the color of the nude: critics named it a "brown Olympia." Careful deconstruction of this epithet allows Professor Pollock to explore the ways in which racist discourse structures art and art history, posing questions of cultural, sexual and ethnic difference in order to make us all self-critical, not only in regard to the gender, but also to the color of art history
