Grant Wood's studio : birthplace of American Gothic by Grant Wood( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Library Journal: In 1930, painter Grant Wood (1891-1942) created American Gothic, the iconic image of a stolid Midwestern couple complete with three-pronged pitchfork. The Art Institute of Chicago exhibited and purchased the piece, catapulting Wood to national acclaim as a regionalist. In conjunction with the opening of Wood's studio at the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art in Iowa, guest curator Milosch (Smithsonian) presents a survey of Wood's artwork and four highly readable essays on the artist, his career, his connection to the Arts and Crafts movement, and his relationship to Modernism. Included is the bitter campaign against his carefully articulated and representational images and his alleged ties to National Socialism in Germany. Contributors include on-site curator Debra Foxley Leach and art historians Wanda M. Corn, James M. Dennis, and Joni L. Kinsey. Although many books on this artist have been published, especially those concentrating on the iconic painting, this book is recommended for libraries that need a broad and careful survey of Wood and his culture.-Ilene Skeen, Hunter Coll

Art History 202, Renaissance to Modern Art( )

in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is an illustration list for Art History 202. From the Italian Renaissance to Contemporary Art, the course is a survey history of painting, sculpture and some architecture in the Western World. It progresses from the art of the late Middle Ages into that of the Renaissance (Early, High and Late) followed by the beginnings of the Modern World as an Age of Expansion in the 17th and 18th centuries. From the time of the American and French Revolutions it traces the developments of art in sight of the rapid growth of Industrial Capitalism and culminates with the accelerating individualism of Modernism and Postmodernism in the 20th century. Art Patronage during this span of seven centuries changes from Church dominance to that of the Nation State and, in our time, to the Corporation. Throughout these phases of patronage and in large measure despite them, the relentless rise of individualistic expression and innovation becomes the inevitable theme of this course
