Divine mirrors : the Virgin Mary in the visual arts by Melissa R Katz( Book )

8 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 718 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Divine Mirrors examines the complex relationship between sacred imagery and secular identity in the art of the Madonna." "This work features the work of such renowned artists as Il Pintoricchio, Mantegna, Munch, and Leger, alongside fresh, undiscovered masters and little-known works of art.

Black womanhood : images, icons, and ideologies of the African body by Hood Museum of Art( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 612 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Explorations of contemporary art have focused on issues of identity and race for some time. Few, however, have sought to investigate these themes by juxtaposing historical and contemporary frameworks. Black Womanhood examines an especially charged icon - the black female body - and contemporary artists' interventions upon historical images of black women as exotic Others, erotic fantasies, and supermaternal Mammies." "This book presents icons of the black female body as seen from three separate but intersecting perspectives: the traditional African, the colonial, and the contemporary global. The display and contemplation of such iconic images addresses complex and often competing forces of self-presentation and the representation of others. Peeling back layers of social, cultural, and political realities, Black Womanhood explores how historic icons inform contemporary artistic responses to the black female body through an examination of themes such as beauty, fertility and sexuality, maternity, and women's roles and power in society."--Jacket

Käthe Kollwitz and the women of war : femininity, identity, and art in Germany during World Wars I and II by Käthe Kollwitz( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The art of German printmaker and sculptor Kathe Kollwitz (1867-1945) is famously empathetic; Kollwitz imbued her prints, drawings, and sculpture with eloquent and often painful commentary on the human condition, especially the horrors of war. This insightful book, the first English-language catalogue on Kollwitz in more than two decades, offers the singular opportunity to examine her work against the tumultuous backdrop of World Wars I and II. The societal cost of war became an enduring subject for Kollwitz after her youngest son died on the battlefield in Flanders in 1914. She dedicated much of the remainder of her career to creating images that questioned the efficacy of war, exposed its devastation, and promoted peace. The essays discuss the motifs she developed in this pursuit-young widows, grieving parents alongside maternal figures that serve as defenders, guardians, activists, and mourners-within the context of German visual culture from 1914 to 1945. 0Exhibition: Davis Museum at Wellesley College, Wellesley, USA (16.09-20.12.2015) / Smith College Museum of Art, Northampton, USA (29.01-29.05.2016)

The game worlds of Jason Rohrer by Michael Maizels( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A maker of visually elegant and conceptually intricate games, Jason Rohrer is among the most widely heralded art game designers in the short but vibrant history of the field. His games range from the elegantly simple to others of almost Byzantine complexity. This book, and the exhibition it accompanies, offers a comprehensive account of the artist's oeuvre. The book documents all seventeen of Rohrer's finished games, as well as sketches, ephemera, and related material, with color images throughout. It includes entries on individual games (with code in footnotes), artist interviews, artist writings, commentary by high scorers, and interpretive texts. Two introductory essays view Rohrer's work in the contexts of game studies and art history"--
The Medici's painter : Carlo Dolci and 17th-century Florence( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Carlo Dolci (1616-1687), arguably the greatest painter in 17th-century Florence, was admired and patronized by the city's leading families. Best known for his half-length and single-figure devotional pictures, Dolci was also a gifted painter of altarpieces and portraits. Written by a team of distinguished scholars, The Medici's Painter offers new archival discoveries and insights and features cross-disciplinary approaches to Dolci's life and art and the cultural and political contexts in which he worked. The volume sheds new light on Dolci's significant and impressive body of work. The painter understood the power of his paintings to inspire contemporaries, and his works continue to compel individuals to look closely and feel deeply about art.00Exhibition: Davis Museum, Wellesley, USA (08.02-09.07.2017); Nasher Museum of Art, Durham, USA (24.8.2017-14.01.2018)
