The Link Between Artemisia Gentileschi’S Biography And Her Artistic Oeuvre, Emma Komers Apr 2016

The Link Between Artemisia Gentileschi’S Biography And Her Artistic Oeuvre, Emma Komers

One exception to this trend is the 17th-century Italian artist, Artemisia Gentileschi, whose work demonstrated her ability to use scenes depicting familiar stories as a way to express her personal struggles as a woman. Drawing upon historical interpretations of her art, popular stories at the time, and the artwork itself, this paper demonstrates the use of art as a tool to communicate social injustice.

Expressionism was the major literary and art form in Germany beginning in the early 20th century. It flourished before and during World War I and continued to be the dominant art for of the Early Weimar Republic. By 1924, Neue Sachlichkeit replaced Expressionism as the dominant art form in Germany. Many Expressionists claimed they were never truly apart of Expressionism.

Historicizing Subjectivities: Antigone, Rosemarie Beck And A Lesbian New Yorker, Jamie P. Ross

Lyric Truth: Rosemarie Beck

Presentation examines Rosemarie Beck's development, as a woman and artist as part of the larger social/body politic of the time.

Some Neglected Aspects Of The Rococo: Berkeley, Vico, And Rococo Style, Bennett Gilbert Jun 2014

Some Neglected Aspects Of The Rococo: Berkeley, Vico, And Rococo Style, Bennett Gilbert

Neither approach adequately accounts for Rococo style.

Naming the Rococo raises profound issues for understanding the relations between conception and production in historical terms. Against the many difficulties ...
