Inventing the art collection : patrons, markets, and the state in nineteenth-century Spain by Oscar E Vázquez( Book )

11 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The pace and scale of the exchange of cultural goods of all sorts - paintings, furniture, even ladies' fans - increased sharply in nineteenth-century Spain, and new institutions and practices for exhibiting as well as valorizing "art" were soon formed. Oscar Vazquez maps this cultural landscape, tracing the connections between the growth of art markets and changing patterns of collecting. Unlike many earlier students of collecting, he focuses not upon questions of taste but rather upon the discursive and institutional frameworks that came to regulate the economic and symbolic worth of art at all levels of Spanish society."

Academies and schools of art in Latin America( )

6 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This edited volume's chief aim is to bring together, in an English-language source, the principal histories and narratives of some of the most significant academies and national schools of art in South America, Mexico and the Caribbean, from the late eighteenth to the early twentieth centuries. The book highlights issues shared by Latin American academies of art, but also those that differentiate them from their European counterparts. Authors examine issues including: statutes; influence of workshops and guilds; the importance of patronage; discourses of race and ethnicity in visual pedagogy; and European models versus the quest for national schools. It also offers first-time English translations of many foundational documents of the subject academies and schools. This book will be of interest to scholars in art history, Latin American and Hispanic studies, and modern visual cultures"--

Corporeal rhetoric and social order in the viceroyalty of New Spain: from the Renaissance to the Enlightenment by Yolopattli Hernandez-Torres( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation examines the use of corporeal rhetoric in textual and visual representations of the colonial subject in New Spain. By corporeal rhetoric, I refer to the multiple ways in which the body is represented discursively to persuade readers in accordance with their personal agendas. In this dissertation, the body is understood as the material body, but additionally considered in its symbolical nature when it is related to systems of power and control. By focusing on the manner in which the body is utilized as a rhetorical device to depict New Spain⁰́₉s political, cultural, and religious reality, I will demonstrate how the representation of the colonial subject through the body is intrinsically embedded in the construction of New Spain⁰́₉s social order. This project encompasses a timeframe that ranges from 1579 to 1803, situating each work in relation to its historical, literary, and cultural tradition. The early writings are analyzed in light of the period traditionally denominated as ⁰́conquest⁰́₊, in which corporeal rhetoric was employed by Spanish religious authorities to evangelize the Amerindian groups. In the early colonial period, the concept of social order was defined by the interaction of elements such as the enforcement of Catholicism carried out by the missionary men, as well as the Amerindian population⁰́₉s adherence to these rules. The analysis of these texts suggests that the body of the missionary man embodies the Euro-Christian tradition. The tools they used in this process, written and visual, coexisted among the Amerindian cultures and sometimes clashed with their ancient traditions, especially the way in which the body is conceived by both cultures. The first chapter is devoted to the study of religious conversion of the Amerindian population and the manner in which the indigenous body works within that process in the illustrated book ⁰́Retórica cristiana⁰́₊ written by Diego de Valadés (1579). The second chapter analyzes the religious life of Sebastián de Aparicio, a Spanish man living in colonial Mexico who was the protagonist in the text ⁰́₋Vida y milagros del glorioso confessor de Cristo, Sebastián de Aparicio⁰́₊ (1629) by Bartolomé Sánchez Parejo. In this text, Aparicio⁰́₉s body incarnates the characteristics of sainthood for the local community. In the written works of the late colonial period, corporeal rhetoric is associated with the body politic. These texts deeply rooted in the tenets of the Enlightenment correlate the physical and psychological health of the individual with the health of the body politic. My contention is that in the Mexican texts of the late colonial period, the concept of social order can only thrive through the attempt to categorize and objectify those colonial bodies that are in need of social control. Nevertheless, the diverse shape of the colonial population and the vast geographic areas that they inhabited make this political effort very challenging. Chapter 3 focuses on two legal documents: ⁰́₋Relación de la causa de Juana María, mulata. Esclava, mulata y hechicera⁰́₊ (1750), which describes the legal process of Juana María, a woman accused of practicing witchcraft. And also the legal process ⁰́₋María Rita Vargas y María Lucía Celis. Beatas Embaucadoras de la colonia⁰́₊ (1803). This chapter examines the dangerous connotations that civil authorities attributed to certain women of the late colonial period based on her religious practices, her sexual gender, and her racial background. Lastly, chapter 4 studies the political treatise ⁰́₋Enfermedades políticas que padece la capital de esta Nueva España⁰́₊ (1787), which demonstrates the interrelation between the body politic and the social order. Villarroel⁰́₉s work evidences the relations between the health of an individual, the health of the entire population, and the measures of hygiene. His critique shows his interest in the promotion of the Bourbon reforms to heal the symbolic body of New Spain

Constructing the Artistic Subject in Golden Age Spain by Carmen B Ripolles( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this dissertation, I examine the development of artistic identity in Golden Age Spain by elucidating the cultural, social, and economic contexts which framed notions of the artist during this period. More particularly, I focus on the notion of artistic nobility as it relates to contemporary evolving aristocratic ideals. Seventeenth-century Spain was a period marked by the continuous reconfiguration of the traditional model of nobility. Through a close analysis of theoretical artistic discourses, popular portrayals of the artist, and actual artistic practice, I offer a critical re-assessment of the artistic assimilation of aristocratic values. I offer a new approach to studies of Spanish art by regarding artistic identity as an unstable and fluctuating category that is in constant dialogue with broader cultural, social, and economic frameworks, and the discourse of artistic nobility as an arena in which alternative forms of artistic identity could paradoxically be advanced. This entails detailed analyses of some of the issues surrounding noble identity in the Golden Age and how these permeated notions of the artist during this period. I also consider how, conversely, the artist became a particularly visible site where constantly changing aristocratic ideals could be embodied

The politics of display: identity and state at the San Juan Print Biennial, 1970-1981 by Maria Del Mar González( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Acknowledging the complexity of the BSJ as a physical institution, display site, and an ideological apparatus, this dissertation combines close analysis of the history, interconnected with a selection of BSJ general editions and their corresponding homage artist exhibits, exhibition catalogs, awarded prints, and critical reception. This study combines that approach with careful attention to archival materials that include unpublished correspondences and manuscripts, internal ICP-BSJ documents, interviews, as well as periodical articles and criticism
Systems and feedback: Cildo Meireles's "Insertions into Ideological Circuits", 1970-ongoing by Teresa Cristina Jardim De Santa Cruz Oliveira( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

As a system in operation, the Insertions series engages in, and assimilates feedback from, its first occurrence. This dissertation explores some of the different contexts in which the general schema of Insertions was realized--notably, the exhibitions INFORMATION and Agnus Dei in addition to publications-- and addresses some of the feedback and the disputes in the art world regarding the categorization and legitimation of the Insertions series produced in the wake of conceptualism. By offering the first comprehensive study of the Insertions series in its historical specificity, this dissertation paradoxically allows us to understand how the Insertions series continues to operate today as a feedback system within the work of contemporary artists in Brazil

On shifting ground: the revolutionary career of Francois Gerard by Jennifer Langworthy( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation examines the career of Francois-Pascal-Simon Gerard (1770- 1837) from its beginnings in the mid-1780s through the end of the French Revolution and provides a more complete understanding of Gerard as a key artist of the Revolutionary decade. A goal of this study is to set aside long-standing assumptions concerning Gerard's political convictions and doubts about his artistic originality in order to shed light on Gerard's critical contributions to Revolutionary art, and in particular, to the Davidian school. I demonstrate that, in the 1790s, Gerard moved away from the subjects and styles forged in Jacques-Louis David's (1748-1825) studio. Most significantly, he reinvented classicism as a vehicle for moderate political themes, he reintroduced apolitical, sexualized imagery into classicism, and he established an artistic practice in which the serious business of the history painter was thoroughly integrated with that of the high-society portraitist. To do this, Gerard developed new modes of classicism, experimented with the emergent subject matter of Romanticism, and and explored issues of gender and sexuality in uncommon ways. During the tumultuous decade of the Revolution, when political consensus was at best fleeting and the traditional institutions of the French art world faltered, Gerard's political and artistic flexibility allowed him not only to escape many of the consequences suffered by politically committed artists, but also eventually to thrive as a leading painter of the society of the late Directory. His career provides an alternative case for understanding the interplay of art, politics, and patronage in late-eighteenth century France
