This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: In the early twentieth century Frances Cranmer Greenman, Alice Hugy, Elsa Laubach Jemne, Clara Mairs, Evelyn Raymond, Jo Lutz Rollins, and Ada Wolfe established successful careers as artists in Minneapolis and Saint Paul. They played significant roles in the development of the art schools, galleries, and arts organizations that make the Twin Cities a major cultural center today. Yet their strong reputations were eclipsed mid-century by the rise of Abstract Expressionism and other male-dominated modernist movements. Codice inventario libreria ABE_book_usedgood_1890434833
Su questo libro:
Drawing on unpublished papers, contemporaneous accounts, and interviews with their students, descendants, and collectors, Pioneer Modernists presents a new picture of their cosmopolitan art training, multi-faceted careers, and sometimes unconventional lives, set in the context of the tumultuous events of the twentieth century. It examines their work (paintings, prints, decorative work, and sculptures) in terms of its humanistic ideas, technical sophistication, and visual appeal. By relating this work to national and international art movements, Pioneer Modernists contributes to a new understanding of Modernism as richly diverse.
This study grows out of a 2007 exhibition at the Minnesota Museum of American Art, "In Her Own Right: Minnesota's First Generation of Women Artists." It is enriched by numerous reproductions of works in public and private collections, many never before published.
