An Issue Of Methodology: Anakreon, Perikles, Xanthippos, Brunilde S. Ridgway Oct 1998

An Issue Of Methodology: Anakreon, Perikles, Xanthippos, Brunilde S. Ridgway

Classical and Near Eastern Archaeology Faculty Research and Scholarship

Standard assumptions about the portrait of Anakreon known through works of the Roman period are here reviewed in light of all available evidence. Pausanias's mention of a statue of the Ionic poet on the Athenian Akropolis has led to extensive conjectures about Anakreon's relationship to Perikles' family and the message such a monument was meant to convey. The possibility is raised that the known portrait was created later than ca. 440, and, more specifically, that the full-body representation now in Copenhagen served the requirements.

James, Liz. Light And Color In Byzantine Art, Kathleen Maxwell Sep 1998

James, Liz. Light And Color In Byzantine Art, Kathleen Maxwell

Art and Art History

James' title coupled with the generous number of color illustrations in her text led me to assume that she would survey Byzantine art in more traditional terms of light and color. Instead, the book pursues the perceptual repercussions of color in Byzantine art and is based on James' dissertation, "Colour Perception in Byzantium" (University of London, 1989).

Sebastopol State Historical Park (41gu9), Seguin, Texas: Archeological Excavations, 1978-1988, Sandra R. Sauer, Art Black, Cynthia Brandimarte May 1998

Sebastopol State Historical Park (41gu9), Seguin, Texas: Archeological Excavations, 1978-1988, Sandra R. Sauer, Art Black, Cynthia Brandimarte

Index of Texas Archaeology: Open Access Gray Literature from the Lone Star State

The town of Seguin in Guadalupe County, Texas, was known for its numerous limecrete structures. Limecrete structures probably once numbered more than 100; now, the house known as Sebastopol is one of only two still standing. Between 1978 and 1988, archeological excavations were conducted by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department in and around Sebastopol. The excavations were preparatory to and in conjunction with architectural restoration of the building and development of the site as a State Historical Park. Archeological excavations were intended to evaluate only those areas impacted by the architectural restoration. Excavation units were placed primarily in and ...


Ana Mendieta, The Iowa Years: A Critical Study, 1969 Through 1977, Julia P. Herzberg May 1998

Ana Mendieta, The Iowa Years: A Critical Study, 1969 Through 1977, Julia P. Herzberg

Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This dissertation investigates the artistic development of Ana Mendieta (born Cuba, 1948; died United States, 1985) from 1969 to 1977 when she lived in Iowa City, attended the University of Iowa, worked as an art teacher, and established herself as an artist. Mendieta is known for her early performance pieces and earth-body sculptures. From the late 1980s her work has been increasingly included in the contexts of feminist art history, performance, photography, work in nature, body art, self-representation, Cuban art, and transcultural identity. Collected by major museums throughout the United States, her work has begun to be included in surveys ...

Art of the Scholar-Poets: Traditional Chinese Painting and Calligraphy

April 01 to May 09, 1998

Marsh Art Gallery, University of Richmond Museums

Introduction

Chinese culture developed one of the world's most enduring artistic traditions, literati painting, based upon a unique idea about the purposes of art. The art of the scholar-poets is centered in calligraphy and poetry, which the literati learned at an early age as part of their basic education. Painting was done with the same tools as poetry and calligraphy - brush, ink, and paper - and it was an easy step to express poetic sensibilities in visual as ...

Art Faculty Publications

(First Paragraph) Planning has been a part of the American landscape since the establishment of the first colonial outposts, but it was not until the early twentieth century that the field's protagonists organized and professionalized. Also a relatively recent phenomenon is the field of American planning history, which for many years was the neglected stepchild of urban history and the distant cousin of architectural history. Over the past decade, however, a steady outpouring of interdisciplinary research has garnered for the field well-deserved recognition within the academy. At a time when more established disciplines are increasingly torn by ideological differences ...

Stone Beads And Their Imitations, Robert K. Liu Jan 1998

Stone Beads And Their Imitations, Robert K. Liu

BEADS: Journal of the Society of Bead Researchers

Simulations of precious-stone beads began to be made as soon as feasible materials became available. From antiquity onward, we have replicas of stone beads made of glazed stone, faience, and other ceramics, and glass. In contemporary times, glass and plastic have become the predominant substitutes for stone beads, although materials of organic origin, such as bone and tusk, have also been used. Information is presented on the background, materials, and techniques for detecting such simulations, using primarily visual clues provided by macro color photographs.


A History Of Gem Beadmaking In Idar-Oberstein, Si Frazier, Ann Frazier, Glenn Lehrer Jan 1998

A History Of Gem Beadmaking In Idar-Oberstein, Si Frazier, Ann Frazier, Glenn Lehrer

BEADS: Journal of the Society of Bead Researchers

Located at the southwestern edge of Germany, Idar-Oberstein is the historic stone-cutting center of Europe. The origins of the industry go back at least 500 years. The industry was originally based on local deposits of agate, jasper, rock crystal, and amethyst but beginning in the 19th century, all kinds of rough gemstones began to be imported from around the world. The industry grew very rapidly from the middle of the 19th century. A great deal of this success was based on the manufacture of agate beads ("African money") for export to Africa and the Middle East. This article not only ...

Dressed To Kill: Jade Beads And Pendants In The Maya Lowlands, David M. Pendergast Jan 1998

Dressed To Kill: Jade Beads And Pendants In The Maya Lowlands, David M. Pendergast

BEADS: Journal of the Society of Bead Researchers

Jade was a material of paramount importance in ancient Maya life owing to its symbolic significance. The meanings of jade's color lent to the stone, and to those adorned with objects fashioned from it, an unmistakable aura of power. As a result, jade objects figure very prominently in the archaeological record, and their forms and contexts bespeak their ancient meanings. The tracing of the shapes, carving, production techniques, and use history of jades underscores the role of jade in Maya belief, political economy, and personal ornamentation.
