Charles Sheeler and the Cult of the Machine

Charles Sheeler And Cult Of The Machine [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Charles Sheeler and the Cult of the Machine by Karen Lucic Book Summary:

Charles Sheeler (1886-1965) was one of the most noted American painters and photographers to embrace the iconography of the machine. But was he high priest or heretic in the religion of mass production and technology that dominated his era? Karen Lucic considers this intriguing question while telling us Sheeler's story, and showing us how Sheeler produced images of extraordinary aesthetic power that provocatively confirmed America's technological and industrial prestige in vivid detail.

The Cult of the Machine

Charles Sheeler And Cult Of The Machine [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Cult of the Machine by Emma Acker,Sue Canterbury,Adrian Daub,Lauren Palmor Book Summary:

A fresh look at a bold and dynamic 20th-century American art style Characterized by highly structured, geometric compositions with smooth surfaces, linear qualities, and lucid forms, Precisionism fully emerged after World War I and flourished in the 1920s and 1930s. This insightful publication, featuring more than 100 masterworks by artists such as Charles Sheeler, Georgia O'Keeffe, and Charles Demuth, sheds new light on the Precisionist aesthetic and the intellectual concerns, excitement, tensions, and ambivalences about industrialization that helped develop this important strand of early American modernism. Essays explore the origins of the style--which reconciled realism with abstraction and adapted European art movements like Purism, Cubism, and Futurism to American subject matter--as well as its relationship to photography, and the ways in which it reflected the economic and social changes brought about by industrialization and technology in the post-World War I world. In addition to making a meaningful contribution to the resurging interest in Modernism and its revisionist narratives, this book offers copious connections between the past and our present day, poised on the verge of a fourth industrial revolution.

Technocritiques

Charles Sheeler And Cult Of The Machine [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Technocritiques by François JARRIGE Book Summary:

Les techniques promettent abondance et bonheur, elles définissent la condition humaine contemporaine. Alors pourquoi les contester ? Les discours technocritiques ne masquent-ils pas des peurs irrationnelles, un conservatisme suranné, voire un propos réactionnaire ? Pourtant, depuis que les sociétés humaines sont entrées dans la spirale de l'industrialisation, des individus et des groupes très divers ont dénoncé les techniques de leur temps et agi pour enrayer leurs effets. Contre l'immense condescendance de la postérité, Technocritiques est un ouvrage qui prend au sérieux ces discours et ces luttes. Depuis deux siècles, les technocritiques sont foisonnantes et multiformes, elles émanent des philosophes et des romanciers comme des artisans et des ouvriers ; elles se retrouvent en Europe comme dans le reste du monde etnourrissent sans cesse des pratiques alternatives. Toute unetradition de combat et de pensée originale et méconnue s'est constituée et ce livre d'histoire au présent tente de leur redonner vie tout en pointant les impasses des choix politiques mortifères portés par la foi en une " croissance " aveugle. Et, en filigrane, il montre comment s'est imposé le grand récit chargé de donner sens à la multitude des objets et artefacts qui saturent nos existences.

The Oxford Encyclopedia of American Cultural and Intellectual History

Charles Sheeler And Cult Of The Machine [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Oxford Encyclopedia of American Cultural and Intellectual History by Paul S. Boyer Book Summary:

The Oxford Encyclopedia of American Cultural and Intellectual History brings together in one two-volume set the record of the nation's values, aspirations, anxieties, and beliefs as expressed in both everyday life and formal bodies of thought. Over the past twenty years, the field of cultural history has moved to the center of American historical studies, and has come to encompass the experiences of ordinary citizens in such arenas as reading and religious practice as well as the accomplishments of prominent artists and writers. Some of the most imaginative scholarship in recent years has emerged from this burgeoning field. The scope of the volume reflects that development: the encyclopedia incorporates popular entertainment ranging from minstrel shows to video games, middlebrow ventures like Chautauqua lectures and book clubs, and preoccupations such as "Perfectionism" and "Wellness" that have shaped Americans' behavior at various points in their past and that continue to influence attitudes in the present. The volumes also make available recent scholarly insights into the writings of political scientists, philosophers, feminist theorists, social reformers, and other thinkers whose works have furnished the underpinnings of Americans' civic activities and personal concerns. Anyone wishing to understand the hearts and minds of the inhabitants of the United States from the early days of settlement to the twenty-first century will find the encyclopedia invaluable.

Walker Evans

Charles Sheeler And Cult Of The Machine [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Walker Evans by Judith Keller Book Summary:

Walker Evans is widely recognized as one of the greatest American photographers of the twentieth century, and the J. Paul Getty Museum owns one of the most comprehensive collections of his work, including more of his vintage prints than any other museum in the world. This lavishly illustrated volume brings together for the first time all of the Museum’s Walker Evans holdings. Included here are familiar images—such as Evans’s photographs of tenant farmers and their families, made in the 1930s and later published in Let Us Now Praise Famous Men—and images that are much less familiar—such as the photographs Evans made in the 1940s of the winter quarters of the Ringling Brothers circus, or his very late Polaroids, made in the 1970s. In addition, many previously unpublished Evans photographs, and variant croppings of classic images, appear here for the first time. Author Judith Keller has written a lively, informative text that places these photographs in the larger context of Evans’s life and career and the culture—especially the popular culture—of the time. In so doing, she has produced an indispensible volume for anyone interested in the history of photography or American culture in the twentieth century. Also included is the most comprehensive bibliography on Walker Evans published to date.

Charles Sheeler in Doylestown

Charles Sheeler And Cult Of The Machine [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Charles Sheeler in Doylestown by Karen Lucic,Charles Sheeler,Allentown Art Museum,Amon Carter Museum of Western Art,Cincinnati Art Museum Book Summary:

Charles Sheeler in Doylestown investigates one artist's lifelong engagement with the rich, distinctive traditions of rural Bucks County, Pennsylvania. It charts Sheeler's discovery of the region's architecture and artifacts beginning about 1910, when he and fellow artist Morton Livingston Schamberg rented an 18th-century farmhouse in Doylestown. It assesses the impact this seminal event had on Sheeler's early career, and how his cyclical return to Bucks County themes in later life reveals poignant attachments and emotional depths not usually ascribed to this 20th-century painter and photographer -- known primarily as an iconographer of the machine.

Visionary Experience in the Golden Age of Spanish Art

Charles Sheeler And Cult Of The Machine [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Visionary Experience in the Golden Age of Spanish Art by Victor I. Stoichita Book Summary:

In this original and lucid account of how Spanish painters of the 16th and 17th centuries dealt with mystic visions in their art, and of how they attempted to "represent the unrepresentable", Victor Stoichita aims to establish a theory of visionary imagery in Western art in general, and one for the Spanish Counter-Reformation in particular. He reveals how the spirituality of the Counter-Reformation was characterized by a rediscovery of the role of the imagination in the exercise of faith. This had important consequences for painters such as Velazquez, Zurbaran and El Greco, leading to the development of ingenious solutions for visual depictions of mystical experience. This was to crystallize into an overtly meditative and didactic pictorial language. That Spanish painting is both cerebral and passionate is due to the particular historical forces which shaped it. Stoichita's account will be of crucial interest not just to scholars of Spanish art but to anyone interested in how art responds to ideological pressures.
