Couture culture a study in modern art and fashion by Nancy J Troy( file )
17 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 1,521 libraries worldwide
She shows how Poiret and other designers patronized the arts and presented themselves as artists not only to sell their individual dresses to wealthy clients but also to promote the mass production of their designs. The contradictions she uncovers suggest surprising parallels with the readymades and fashion-related work of Marcel Duchamp, who explored the questions of originality and authenticity raised by couture culture during the 1910s and 1920s." "In contrast to dominant accounts of early twentieth-century art that have dismissed fashion as superficial, fleeting, and feminized, Troy's more nuanced approach reveals conceptual structures and marketing strategies shared by modern art and fashion in these years."--BOOK JACKET
The De Stijl environment by Nancy J Troy( Book )
8 editions published between 1983 and 1986 in English and held by 786 libraries worldwide
"The Dutch magazine De Stijl, published from 1917 to 1931, was the focus of a remarkable group of advanced artists and architects who sought to combine their individual talents in collaborative projects that reflected their social and aesthetic ideals. The De Stijl Environment explores the group's approach to exterior and interior spaces and to furniture. It treats such themes as color, abstraction, and the corner, and describes the various collaborative efforts within the movement, in particular, the one that produced the De Stijl environment. Troy traces its evolution from an architecturally defined space to one determined by coloristic design. Among the painters discussed are Piet Mondrian, Theo van Doesburg, Vilmos Huszar, and Bart van der Liek; the architects include Gerrit Rietveld, Rob van't Hoff, Jan Wils, J.J.P Oud, and Cornelius van Eesteren."--Page 4 of cover

(Un)Becoming sculpture : mondrian s New York furniture by Nancy J Troy( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Nancy Troy traceert in de tweede Hofstede de Groot-lezing de geschiedenis van het meubilair dat na het overlijden van Piet Mondriaan (1872-1944) achterbleef in zijn atelier te New York. De werktafel, het krukje en het keukentrapje zijn vanaf de jaren vijftig regelmatig geëxposeerd, waarbij ze vanaf de jaren zeventig als sculptuur werden gepresenteerd.0Waren deze meubelstukken voor Mondriaan echter wel onderdeel van zijn oeuvre? Of zijn er andere omstandigheden die ervoor zorgen dat deze stukken nu als sculptuur worden gezien? Nancy Troy schetst in haar lezing de geschiedenis van de opwaardering van deze functionele meubels tot kostbare kunstvoorwerpen
