Visual Culture Project: Confederate War Etchings: Searching For Arms By Adalbert Johann Volck, Lynn B. Hatcher 2017 Gettysburg College

Visual Culture Project: Confederate War Etchings: Searching For Arms By Adalbert Johann Volck, Lynn B. Hatcher

Student Publications

Adalbert Johann Volck’s 1861 sketch of Union soldiers, “Searching for Arms,” represents a substantial contribution to the narrative about gender relations during the American Civil War. This simple, small sketch offers the observer a window into the past. It is a collision of symbols and meaning—from gender to war to the household—all wrapped up in one image. This is a portrait sketch of a woman being invaded in her domestic, private sphere, revealing so much about gender relations during the time. The mistress herself seemed to embody a vast range of sentiments such as anger, fear, frailty ...


The Capitalist-Marxist Dichotomy Within The Hudson River School: Conceptualizing American Property Through The Career Of Worthington Whittredge (1820-1910), Astrid Tvetenstrand 2017 Sotheby's Institute of Art

The Capitalist-Marxist Dichotomy Within The Hudson River School: Conceptualizing American Property Through The Career Of Worthington Whittredge (1820-1910), Astrid Tvetenstrand

MA Theses

The Hudson River School artistic movement has been regarded as one of the foremost examples of American painting. These images of landscape have embodied the spirit of the United States and its perpetually changing relationship with nature. While these nineteenth-century paintings are consistently analyzed through the lenses of Romanticism and Idealism, there is a lacuna in the narrative which accentuates economic and political philosophies as important influencers of these works. The impact of capitalism and Marxism is identifiable through not only the country’s economic system, but also the nation’s artistic movements. These theories are well-defined by paintings highlighting ...

Under Water: Aesthetics And Function In Alexis Rockman's Flooded Landscape, Amy Folkedahl Meehleder 2017 University of Iowa

Under Water: Aesthetics And Function In Alexis Rockman's Flooded Landscape, Amy Folkedahl Meehleder

University of Iowa Honors Theses

This thesis is focused on Alexis Rockman’s large-scale oil painting Manifest Destiny (2004) as a case study for the role and functionality of artistic depictions of environmental catastrophe in an age of ecological crisis and activism. Many read Rockman’s paintings as works of artistic activism, advocating for the prevention of a catastrophic future, and that is in part the artist’s intention. However, Rockman himself has expressed conflicted feelings about his dual role as artist and activist, suggesting that he may not be the right person to bring an environmental message to a broader audience and acknowledging that ...

The "Postmodern Geographies" Of Frank Gehry's Los Angeles, Katherine Shearer 2017 Scripps College

The "Postmodern Geographies" Of Frank Gehry's Los Angeles, Katherine Shearer

Scripps Senior Theses

This thesis examines the ways in which Frank Gehry’s architectural contributions to Los Angeles’ social and built environment have shaped the region’s “postmodern geographies” throughout the 20th and 21st century. Through a focused exploration of three of Gehry’s postmodernist structures in Greater Los Angeles—a house, a library, and a concert hall—this thesis analyses how Gehry and his designs reflected and affected the artistic and socio-spatial development of Los Angeles’ “decidedly postmodern landscape.”


The Denver Museum Of Nature And Science And The Denver Art Museum: A Comparative Study Of Repatriation, Natalie R. Rudd 2017 University of Colorado, Boulder

The Denver Museum Of Nature And Science And The Denver Art Museum: A Comparative Study Of Repatriation, Natalie R. Rudd

Undergraduate Honors Theses

In the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, anthropologists, archaeologists, and hobbyists removed over 200,000 human bodies and 1 million of Native American cultural items, including sacred objects, and burial objects, from Indigenous village and burial sites. The Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) was enacted in 1990 to address and redress this human rights issue. NAGPRA requires all U.S. museums that receive federal government financial support to inventory their collections, consult with tribal nations, and return all materials that meet NAGPRA criteria, including sacred objects, burial objects, human remains, and objects of cultural patrimony to their ...
