The New Art History provides a comprehensive introduction to the fundamental changes which have occurred in both the institutions and practice of art history over the last thirty years. Jonathan Harris examines and accounts for the new approaches to the study of art which have been grouped loosely under the term 'the new art history'. He distinguishes between these and earlier forms of 'radical' or 'critical' analysis, explores the influence of other disciplines and traditions on art history, and relates art historical ideas and values to social change. Structured around an examination of key texts by major contemporary critics, including Tim Clarke, Griselda Pollock, Fred Orton, Albert Boime, Alan Wallach and Laura Mulvey, each chapter discusses a key moment in the discipline of art history, tracing the development and interaction of Marxist, feminist and psychoanalytic critical theories. Individual chapters include: * Capitalist Modernity, the Nation-State and Visual Representation * Feminism, Art, and Art History * Subjects, Identities and Visual Ideology * Structures and Meanings in Art and Society * The Representation of Sexuality

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

"This handbook is designed to accompany the major textbooks used in the art history survey, presenting various methods for analysis of art as well as extensive tips on writing about art. Professor Anne D'Alleva created this handbook to accompany the major textbooks used in art history survey courses. Because the main survey texts focus on the artworks themselves, she saw the need for a complementary handbook that introduces students to the methodologies of art history in an open, accessible way. Look! discusses basic art historical practices, such as visual and contextual analysis, and provides guidelines for writing papers and taking examinations in art history. It provides a short history of the discipline and provides links to related academic disciplines to provide students with a sense of intellectual context for their work."--Publisher's website.

The Methodologies of Art

The Methodologies of Art
Author: Laurie Schneider Adams
Release: 2018-03-09
Editor: Routledge
Pages: 312
ISBN: 9780429974076
Language: en
Available for:

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Since the nineteenth century, when art history became an established academic discipline, works of art have been 'read' in a variety of ways. These different ways of describing and interpreting art are the methodologies of artistic analysis, the divining rods of meaning. Regardless of a work's perceived difficulty, an art object is, in theory, complex. Every work of art is an expression of its culture (time and place) and its maker (the artist) and is dependent on its media (what it's made of). The methodologies discussed here (formal analysis, iconology and iconography, Marxism, feminism, biography and autobiography, psychoanalysis, structuralism, race and gender) reflect the multiplicity of meanings in an artistic image. The second edition includes nineteen new images, new sections on race, gender, orientalism, and colonialism, and a new epilogue that analyzes a single painting to illustrate the different methodological viewpoints.

Editor: Oxford University Press, USA
Pages: 348
ISBN: 9780198747758
Language: en
Available for:

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

"Most philosophers of art of the modern period have concentrated their attention on engaging works of the arts as objects of disinterested aesthetic attention, and on the works that reward that modern of engagement, virtually ignoring the many other ways in which we engage works of the arts. The argument of this book is that it is important for philosophers to expand their attention and discuss as well the more important of those other ways in which we engage works of the arts. After discussing in some detail the main reason why philosophers have not done this, and explaining why this reason should be rejected, the book presents a conceptual framework for discussing the many ways in which we engage works of the arts. The book then employs this framework to discuss, in detail, memorial art, art for veneration, social protest art, work songs, and a recent development in high art, art-reflexive art. The book closes with some reflections on the role of beauty and justice in art in general."--Publisher's description.
