Jack Beal first attained prominence in the early 1960s when he was one of the first American artists to renounce abstract expressionism for realist painting, feeling that he was raising rather than lowering the stakes of his art by doing so. Since then the artist has, in author Eric Shanes's words, "mined a rich vein of representation, which has usually demonstrated a fine sense of observation, an inventive painterliness, an acute responsiveness to shape and pattern, the ability to create dynamic compositional structures, and always the willingness to take artistic risks rather than languish in a single mode of picture making. Moreover, in his best works, Beal's pushing of representational forms to their interface with abstraction has been responsible for the creation of some of the most striking and unusual images of the period." Jack Beal, the first monograph on this leading American artist, surveys his entire oeuvre to date, including paintings, murals, drawings, and prints, beginning with what he himself regards as his first important picture, The Saw (1964). Beal's increasing desire "to make the world inside the canvas nearly as real as the world beyond it," to make the pictorial space as believable as real space, coincided with a decision to tackle narrative in his work - an unfashionable stance and another way of raising the stakes of his art. This combination resulted in a painting of a mythological subject which was also, perhaps more significantly, his first major treatment of the reclining female nude, Danae I of 1965. Through the next decade Beal painted a series of nudes that includes many of his most important paintings; the series concluded and culminated in a second treatment of Danae in 1972. Usually these nudes are set amid complex patterns and shapes including both setting and still-life details. Beal's oeuvre also includes still-lifes done for their own sake; portraits; landscapes; allegories, such as a series on the Virtues and Vices; and a group of murals on the history of labor commissioned by the United States government's General Services Administration to adorn the new Labor Department Building in Washington - the first such project sponsored by the federal government since the great spate of commissions during the 1930s. Through all the artist's work run his passionate moralism and sensuality, which combine with a consummate grasp of his craft to provide works that resonate with visual poetry and emotional density. Shanes concludes his survey of Jack Beal's life and work: "He has been responsible for a serious body of work, and at his best he has created images of complexity and feeling, pictures that have certainly placed representationalism back on the agenda of serious art ... And in his best paintings he has given us rich images that enjoy the power equally to delight us visually, move us emotionally, and stimulate us intellectually." Jack Beal reproduces all of the artist's most important works, including sixty-four in full color, conveying a range and balance of colors of extraordinary freshness and richness. They are accompanied by a major essay written by Shanes, a bibliography, biographical outline, lists of exhibitions and public collections, and index

Integrated Mathematics Definitions, Issues, and Implications. [Report and Executive Summary] by Jack Beal( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The "Integrated Mathematics Project" was conducted under the sponsorship of the Montana Council of Teachers of Mathematics and designed to examine the issues of teaching secondary school mathematics in an integrated manner to all students. The purpose was to improve mathematics literacy in the general population in accordance with suggestions by both the 1987 Mathematical Sciences Education Board (MSEB) draft report, "A Framework for the Revision of the K-12 Mathematics Curriculum," and the 1989 National Council of Teachers of Mathematics publication (NCTM), "Curriculum and Evaluation Standards for School Mathematics." A questionnaire was developed to determine the extent of the interest in, as well as the curriculum structure and content of, the pedagogical strategies critical to an integrated secondary mathematics program and to its expected outcomes and implementation. Responses from 54% of state supervisors (n=27), 31% of district supervisors (n=140), 33% of mathematics teacher educators (n=164), and 28% of mathematics teachers (n=140) were compiled to develop a first report. The data analysis focused on the following areas of concern: (1) a definition of integrated mathematics; (2) extent of interest in integrated mathematics at the state, district, and teacher preparation levels, including expected objectives for students and teachers; and (3) implications of adopting such a program in secondary schools for professional organizations, colleges and universities, state departments of education, school systems, testing organizations, curriculum developers and publishers, and funding agencies. The rest of the report discusses each of three areas in turn. Appendices, forming about two-thirds of the document, include questionnaires used, national demographic data, survey results, and a packet of materials sent to participants who reviewed the second draft of the policy report. A separately bound executive summary accompanies the report. (MDH)
