Women and Art: A Post-Feminist View

Author: 

Adams, Alexander

Credentials: 

Alexander Adams is a British artist and writer. He studied fine art and art history at Goldsmiths College, London. His art has been exhibited worldwide and is in the collections of the Victoria & Albert Museum (London), National Museum Cardiff, Walker Art Gallery (Liverpool), and other museums. His art criticism has been published in The Burlington Magazine, The Art Newspaper, Sculpture Journal, The Jackdaw, The British Art Journal, Apollo, Printmaking Today, Print Quarterly, and other outlets. His poetry has been published in anthologies, broadsides, and single-author volumes. He has been artist-in-residence at the Albers Foundation and is the recipient of the 2018 Artist Scholarship from the Francis Bacon MB Art Foundation, in Monaco. Adams is the author of Culture War, Iconoclasm: Identity Politics and the Erasure of History, Degas, Magritte, and Artivism.

Women & Art surveys the history of women in art and addresses the effects of feminist art history and art production. This book is among the first to offer a critical assessment of the role of feminism in art history and how it has presented and misrepresented women’s roles in art. Seeking to counterbalance overwhelmingly pro-feminist narratives, it relies on evidence from artists, statisticians, and historians to support individual women artists while remaining critical of feminism.

The Face: A Cultural Geography

Author: 

Roth, Marty

Credentials: 

Marty Roth is Professor Emeritus of English at the University of Minnesota.

The face circulates through most things of this world: anything that has presence, that presents itself, that has a front, a surface, an appearance, an aspect, a reputation, or honor – anything that confronts, opposes, or defies – has a face. And the face is a front: from the back it is just a head, a radically different entity. In this exciting new book, distinguished philosopher Marty Roth pursues considerations of the human face in art, literature, philosophy, and other manifestations of human culture.

Author: 

Kieckhefer, Daniel

Credentials: 

Professor of Film Studies, Triton College

Book CoverNinety-nine years ago, a new form of storytelling emerged from the ruins of World War I. Different in scope and power from theater or literature, and unlike any film that had come before, Robert Wiene's The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari addressed a direct challenge to its audience, demanding to be viewed as something other than what was immediately presented. Unfortunately, criticism has not risen to the challenge.

The Last Ulysseans: Culture and Modernism in Montreal

Author: 

Ungar, Molly Pulver, Ph.D., York University, Associate Professor of History (ret.), University of the Fraser Valley

In the 1930s, the exciting urban environment of Montreal provided the perfect venue for a varied group of people who came together to form a kind of “salon” in the turmoil of the Great Depression. For ten years, these friends and acquaintances met each week at the home of the artist John Lyman. They saw themselves as “modern,” a part of the avant-garde that was then busily changing the world.

The Don Carlos Enigma: Variations of Historical Fictions

Author: 

Necula, Maria-Cristina, Ph.D., City University of New York Graduate Center

Book CoverThe death of Spain’s Don Carlos, Prince of Asturias, on July 24, 1568, remains an enigma. Several accounts insinuated that the Spanish Crown Prince was murdered while incarcerated by order of his father, King Philip II. The mystery of Don Carlos’s death, supported by ambassadorial accounts that implied foul play, became a fertile subject for defamation campaigns against Philip, fostering an extraordinary fluidity between history and fiction.

The Woman in Me: Willem de Kooning, Woman I-VI

Author: 

Clark, Marlene: Division of Interdisciplinary Studies, City College of New York, CUNY

Willem de Kooning’s six numbered Woman paintings have incited a maelstrom of critical controversy. At their debut in 1953, the critics were incensed by the ugliness of the images themselves and by the inclusion of vestiges of the figure in abstraction. Consequently, they questioned de Kooning’s attitude toward women and commitment to the Abstract Expressionist project.
