American epics : Thomas Hart Benton and Hollywood by Austen Barron Bailly( Book )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
This generously illustrated book explores the connections between Thomas Hart Benton's art and Hollywood movies from groundbreaking perspectives. Thomas Hart Benton was a thoroughly American artist. His regionally focused paintings and murals depicted everyday American life as well as the country's history. This volume focuses on one of the most American of Benton's associations: Hollywood. Not only did Benton create commissioned murals and portraits of film stars and movies, but he also developed a style that was highly theatrical and narrative. This volume is the first to collect all the works conceived by Benton for the film industry. It includes related ephemera, photographs, and documents of Benton at work, along with a series of thought-provoking essays that explore a diverse array of topics--from Benton's engagement with American identity from the 1920s to the 1960s, to parallels between Benton's use of Old Master methods and film production techniques. Fans of Thomas Hart Benton will find surprising insights into his career, while those fascinated by Hollywood history will discover how one of America's most revered artists shaped and was in turn influenced by the film industry

Ocean liners : glamour, speed and style ( Book )
1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Ocean Liners became floating cities for those lucky enough to travel in an era before commercial flight was widely affordable. This book explores the technical, aesthetic, cultural and political factors that came together to define such an iconic mode of travel, from grand Victorian barges to luxurious Art Deco floating palaces and sleek Modernist post-war liners. The shift in passenger from those driven to immigrate, often by necessity, to the wealthy leisure traveller led to rapid transformations in promotion, architecture, interior design and even the engineering of the ships themselves, as companies and countries completed to provide the most luxurious, safest and fastest liners possible. Dan Finamore is Russell W. Knight Curator of Maritime Art and History, Peabody Essex Museum, Salem, MA. Ghislaine Wood is Deputy Director of the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts at the University of East Anglia, Norwich, England.

Shapeshifting : transformations in Native American art by Karen Kramer( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Public perception of Native American art and culture has often been derived from misunderstandings and misinterpretations, and from images promulgated by popular culture. Typically, Native Americans are grouped as a whole and their art and culture considered part of the past rather than widely present. This work challenges these assumptions by focusing on the objects as art rather than cultural or anthropological artifacts and on the multivalent creativity of Native American artists. The approach highlights the inventive contemporaneity that existed in all periods and continues today. More than 75 works in a wide range of media and scale are organized into four thematic groups: changing, expanding the imagination; knowing, expressing worldview; locating, exploring identity and place; and voicing, engaging the individual. The result is a paradigm shift in understanding Native American art

Fiery pool : the Maya and the mythic sea by Daniel Finamore( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"Maya art and hieroglyphs constitute one of the world's most fascinating, visually striking, and complex systems of expression. Most scholarly interpretations of Maya art and culture have emphasized that this ancient civilization was oriented toward inland centers and preoccupied with the blood of royal lineage and ritual sacrifice. Drawing on recent archaeological discoveries and developments in deciphering Maya glyphs, this volume presents a revisionist reading that shifts the emphasis of interpretation to the mythic power of the sea as the basis of a larger, deeper cultural narrative and history for the Maya." "Surrounded by the sea in all directions, the Maya viewed water as a source of both life and danger. Through the artworks presented - including acknowledged masterpieces and many never before exhibited in the United States - readers will gain a new appreciation for water's influence on Maya cosmology, its role in their interpretation of the supernatural, as well as its impact on Maya cross-cultural contacts, trading practices, and power dynamics. Essays by prominent scholars provide an interdisciplinary context for understanding Maya art as well as new interpretations of traditional iconography and symbolism."--Jacket
