A Ritualized Approach To A Series Of Mixed Media Watercolor Paintings, Richard K. Miller Jul 1969

A Ritualized Approach To A Series Of Mixed Media Watercolor Paintings, Richard K. Miller

All Master's Theses

The thesis problem involved the development of a series of watercolor paintings within a ritualistic format; the standardization of approach resulted in the development of a personal iconography. This iconography was secondary to the total work however.

The French Impressionists, Bill Merrell Jan 1969

The French Impressionists, Bill Merrell

Honors Theses
