Icon : studies in the history of an idea by Moshe Barasch( Book )

18 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the course of centuries of European debate over the nature and status of images of God and sacred figures, debates that have often upset the established order and shaken societies to their core, Moshe Barasch finds that an identifiable doctrine emerges--of the image in general, and of the divine image in particular--out of arguments that have been employed both in attacking sacred images and defending them. In this fascinating work Barasch concentrates on the arguments for and against iconic representation in the early Christian world, from the period of Late Antiquity up to the great and classic defenses of images by St. John of Damascus and Theodore of Studion. Over this period, and within a number of different political, cultural, and religious contexts, several definable themes regarding the icon arose and recurred. One is the theme of the image itself, and how "valid" or "truthful" it is considered to be; a second is the metaphysical resemblance of the icon to the true Christ; a third theme concerns what the image does as opposed to what it is, ranging from relatively crude beliefs in the healing power of images to highly sophisticated analyses of the inner experience of the spectator of a hallowed icon. No book of this kind has been attempted on this topic, and no scholar is better equipped than Moshe Barasch to address the issues he raises. This is a work that goes beyond the immediate concerns of religion, philosophy, aesthetics, history, and art to engage them all
Blindness : the history of a mental image in western thought by Moshe Barasch( Book )

15 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a remarkable study of how Western culture has represented blindness, especially in that most visual of arts, painting. Moshe Barasch draws upon not only the span of art history from antiquity to the eighteenth century but also the classical and biblical traditions that underpin so much of artistic representation: Blind Homer, the healing of the blind, blind musicians, blindness as punishment, blindness as a special mark. The book discusses blindness in antiquity, in the Early Christian world, in the Middle Ages, and in the Renaissance, with a final consideration of Diderot
The language of art : studies in interpretation by Moshe Barasch( Book )

10 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Moshe Barasch, an authority on art theory, tackles the complex question of how art works as language. Barasch shows how, once an art work is seen and understood, a new, communicative function is effectively added to the work. In an engaging style Barasch moves from the art and civilization of Ancient Egypt to that of modern Europe, and effortlessly shows a full and surprising range of language in art--from the magical to the impious, from the ambiguous to the didactic, from the scientific to the propagandistic. Barasch contemplates a variety of mediums including sculpture, painting, mural, statuary, woodcuts, bas-relief, even music. Over one hundred illustrations are included as an integral part of the discussion"--Publisher description
Representation in religion : studies in honor of Moshe Barasch( Book )

7 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The role of representation in religion is complex. While often perceived as essential, it is also associated in many traditions with the liability of idolatry and provokes iconoclasm. The essays in this volume examine the nuances of representation in religion and the debate concerning its place across a variety of traditions from the three Abrahamic faiths, to those of antiquity and the East. This volume consists of presentations made at an international conference held in honor of Moshe Barasch, art historian and cultural critic, who has done much to elucidate the light which representation and religion shed on each other. It pays tribute to Barasch by expanding the base of understanding and insight he has erected. It should be of interest to students of religion and of art history."--Jacket

Modern Theories of Art, 2 : Vol. 2: From Impressionism to Kandinsky by Moshe Barasch( )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this volume, the third in his classic series of texts surveying the history of art theory, Moshe Barasch traces the hidden patterns and interlocking themes in the study of art, from Impressionism to Abstract Art. Barasch details the immense social changes in the creation, presentation, and reception of art which have set the history of art theory on a vertiginous new course: the decreased relevance of workshops and art schools; the replacement of the treatise by the critical review; and the interrelation of new modes of scientific inquiry with artistic theory and praxis. The consequent changes in the ways in which critics as well as artists conceptualized paintings and sculptures were radical, marked by an obsession with intense, immediate sensory experiences, psychological reflection on the effects of art, and a magnetic pull to the exotic and alien, making for the most exciting and fertile period in the history of art criticism
