The American Indian parfleche : a tradition of abstract painting by Gaylord Torrence( Book )
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
These beautiful containers are most closely associated an probably originated with the peoples of the Great Plains, where they were integral to the nomadic way of life, providing a means to store and transport a family's food and possessions. They were made by women from more than forty tribes, and their richly associative and symbolic painted images gave visual expression to the artists' personal and cultural lives. The author writes: "These paintings were inseparable from the world view of their makers, formed from their collective experience and cultural role as women; from the details of their daily lives and the richness and love of family life and tribal associations; from the invisible spirit forces that filled their world and the profound religious traditions that sustained their inner lives; and from their intimate relationship with nature and the sweeping monumental landscapes and incomparable light of the American West which was their home
Debating American modernism : Stieglitz, Duchamp, and the New York avant-garde by Debra Bricker Balken( Book )
6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"From the crossfire between Marcel Duchamp and Alfred Stieglitz and their respective circles there emerged what Debra Bricker Balken calls "a critical reformulation of modernism, one that imprinted the direction of subsequent American art." Balken traces the fascinating threads of the debate between Duchamp and Stieglitz and their respective camps through the 1910s and '20s, and also addresses the sexualized imagery that appears in nearly all of these artists' works, a phenomenon that ironically unifies the two seemingly opposed factions. Jay Bochner provides an absorbing analysis of the artists' respective violations of American expectations about art." "Debating American Modernism includes reproductions of work by artists from both factions, from Arthur Dove, Georgia O'Keeffe, and Paul Strand to Man Ray, Francis Picabia, and Marsden Hartley, as well as by a group who melded the concerns of each, among them, Charles Demuth, Charles Sheeler, John Storrs, and Stuart Davis."--BOOK JACKET
