This book was released on 2015-02-24 with total page 160 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Since the early 1960s, Dorothy Iannone has occupied herself with the attempt to represent ecstatic love: 'the union of gender, feeling and pleasure,' as she herself describes it. Today, her oeuvre encompasses paintings, drawings, collages, video sculptures, objects, and publications. A narrative element, fed with personal mythologies, experiences, feelings, and relationships, runs through all of her works.Particularly in her late figurative painting, which almost appears to dissolve into the ornamental, she creates scenarios in symbolic settings. Since the 1960s, this visual self-empowerment has been read as a contribution to the liberalization of female sexuality. On the other hand, Iannone, who takes a spiritual, existential approach, has never seen herself as part of a feminist movement.This publication sheds light on Iannone's work in relation to censorship, based on her artist's book The Story of Bern. In spring 1969, the artist was confronted with the confiscation of her works in the exhibition Freunde (Friends) at Kunsthalle Bern, under the directorship of Harald Szeemann. Iannone responded to this boycott by producing a book, in which she made her perspective public and thus reclaimed self-determination over the content-related and formal aspects of her work, which had been labeled controversial.Published with Migros Museum for Contemporary Art, Zurich.English and German text.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle.

From the cave paintings of prehistory through the ancient civilizations of Egypt, Assyria, and Greece to Renaissance drawings and modern microscopy, these images reveal the hidden influences and cultural pressures of their times. Separate chapters focus on the animal world, herbs and the birth of botany, physics and the science of non-living matter, mankind in the world; the world in space; and other seminal topics. The illustrations have been chosen from among the best preserved in the world, some never before reproduced.

Download or read book Visualizing Medieval Medicine and Natural History, 1200-1550 written by Jean Ann Givens and published by Ashgate Publishing, Ltd.. This book was released on 2006-01-01 with total page 278 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Visualizing Medieval Medicine and Natural History, 1200-1550 addresses fundamental questions about the interplay of visual and verbal communication in medieval medicine, pharmacy, and natural history. Analyzing images in works as diverse as herbals, jewellery, surgery manuals, lay health guides, cinquecento paintings, manuscripts of Pliny's Natural History, and Leonardo's notebooks, the essays ask: What counts as medical illustration in the Middle Ages? What purposes and audiences do these illustrations serve? How do images of natural objects, observed phenomena, and theoretical concepts amplify texts and convey complex cultural attitudes? Why do we regard some of these images as medieval productions while other exactly contemporary images strike us as typically early modern in character?

Summary Book Review A Visual History of Illustration by Andrew Hall:
Download or read book A Visual History of Illustration written by Andrew Hall and published by . This book was released on 2021-08-17 with total page 400 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A major new history of illustration that follows this artistic and professional practice across four centuries and through diverse traditions, cultures, and contexts For centuries, illustrators have worked in a wide variety of industries, including fashion, publishing, advertising, education, entertainment, science, food, interior design, architecture, and medicine. Although illustration shares the same fundamental visual language as fine art, it is created as the result of a client-led brief, with imposed parameters and for an intended audience. In this visually lavish book, Andrew Hall presents a chronological, international survey of the history of illustration, revealing the broad connections of this discipline with technological innovation, political events, patterns of trade and travel, and cultural influences. Hall begins with the eighteenth-century political satire of Gillray, Rowlandson, and Cruikshank, and continues through the early illustrated children's books of Greenaway, Allingham, and Shippen Green; the magazine work and advertisements of Mucha and Toulouse-Lautrec; the modernism of Lempicka and Cassandre; the countercultural images of Glaser, Douglas, Wilson, and Robbins; the late twentieth-century illustrations of Crumb, Baseman, Ware, and Pettibon; and the most recent work of Marjane Satrapi and Shepard Fairey, among many others. The evolution of illustration is also one of print culture, and Hall examines the technologies of intaglio relief, engraving, lithography, screen printing, and digital paper printing; as well as the application of illustration to areas such as botany, album covers, graphic novels, animation, gaming, and infographics. He explores the role of illustration in relation to the two industrial revolutions, the abuses of the slave trade and colonialism, the two world wars, and political activism; and the relationship between illustration, photography, and the fine arts. Sumptuous and comprehensive, A Visual History of Illustration offers a remarkable look at how artists have long created illustrated images to mirror and comment upon their times, allowing a way for others to consider and understand the world.
Summary Book Review Photography, Natural History and the Nineteenth-Century Museum by Kathleen Davidson:
Download or read book Photography, Natural History and the Nineteenth-Century Museum written by Kathleen Davidson and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2017-12-02 with total page 234 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Victorian era heralded an age of transformation in which momentous changes in the field of natural history coincided with the rise of new visual technologies. Concurrently, different parts of the British Empire began to more actively claim their right to being acknowledged as indispensable contributors to knowledge and the progress of empire. This book addresses the complex relationship between natural history and photography from the 1850s to the 1880s in Britain and its colonies: Australia, New Zealand and, to a lesser extent, India. Coinciding with the rise of the modern museum, photography’s arrival was timely, and it rapidly became an essential technology for recording and publicising rare objects and valuable collections. Also during this period, the medium assumed a more significant role in the professional practices and reputations of naturalists than has been previously recognized, and it figured increasingly within the expanding specialized networks that were central to the production and dissemination of new knowledge. In an interrogation that ranges from the first forays into museum photography and early attempts to document collecting expeditions to the importance of traditional and photographic portraiture for the recognition of scientific discoveries, this book not only recasts the parameters of what we actually identify as natural history photography in the Victorian era but also how we understand the very structure of empire in relation to this genre at that time.

Download or read book The Development of the Secondary Curriculum written by Michael H. Price and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2018-10-03 with total page 270 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Originally published in 1986. This book's focus is on English secondary schooling in the late 19th and 20th Centuries, during which the definition of a general ‘secondary’ education was itself negotiated and consolidated before the development of secondary modern and then comprehensive schools. In each chapter, a specialist contributor considers the changing ideology, shape and status of one of the seven traditional academic subjects, namely Classics, Modern Languages, English, History, Geography, Mathematics and Science. These seven school subjects have dominated the academic school curriculum since the nineteenth century and continue to exert a powerful influence upon the contemporary school curriculum today despite the emergence of various rivals and the growing status of ‘practical' subjects.
