Bosch by Laurinda S Dixon( Book )

19 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and Dutch and held by 747 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hieronymus Bosch (c.1450-1516), one of the major artists of the Northern Renaissance, had a seemingly inexhaustible imagination. Known as the creator of disturbing demons and spectacular hell-scapes, he also painted the Garden of Earthly Delights, where gleeful naked youths feast on giant strawberries. Little is known of Bosch's life and his art has remained enigmatic, variously interpreted as the hallucinations of a madman or the secret language of a heretical sect. The Surrealists claimed Bosch as a predecessor and saw in his work the imagery of dream, fantasy and the subconscious. Laurinda Dixon argues, however, that to understand and appreciate Bosch's art, we must return to the era in which he lived." "Dixon presents Bosch as an artist of his times, knowledgeable about the latest techniques of painting, active in the religious life of his community and conversant with the scientific developments of his day. She draws on popular culture, religious texts and contemporary medicine, astrology, astronomy and chemistry - especially alchemy, now discounted but then of interest to serious thinkers - to investigate the meaning of Bosch's art."--Jacket
Perilous chastity : women and illness in pre-Enlightenment art and medicine by Laurinda S Dixon( Book )

11 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reviews : "Dixon presents her arguments clearly and forcefully, and her volume is well written, as well as a feast for the eyes. ... Dixon's study is an important one for scholars in medical history, art history, and women's studies because of its ambitious attempts to mold medical theory about female bodies and artists' representations of women and girls into a comprehensive picture of women's lives."--Ann Ellis Hanson, review "This impeccably researched work traces 'hysteria' ... into the modern period. ... Dixon's work will be of great interest to scholars in the fields of medical history, art history, and women's studies."--Katherine Dauge-Roth, review"--amazon.com

Twenty-first-century perspectives on nineteenth-century art : essays in honor of Gabriel P. Weisberg by Gabriel P Weisberg( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book presents an interdisciplinary and inclusive view of nineteenth-century art, observed from the vantage point of the new twenty-first century. The areas of expertise represented by the thirty essays herein span the full range of nineteenth-century studies, and include discussions of such artistic styles as realism, impressionism, romanticism, and art nouveau, as well as early twentieth-century movements that owe their formative influence to the nineteenth century. Topics span the historical gamut from revivalism to the roots of modernism, considering along the way such themes as the depiction of women, Orientalism, art criticism, evolutionary theory, political propaganda, history painting, landscape, and national identity. Aspects of art display, public monuments, and international exhibitions shed light on the roles of government and individuals in the dissemination of artistic styles and subject matter. Unique in this collection is an emphasis on the marketing of art, both in America and abroad, which considers the important financial and commercial issues that continue to influence viewers' beliefs and perceptions. Most important, this book demonstrates that the rich field of nineteenth-century studies continues to inspire discovery and creativity."--Publisher description
In sickness and in health : disease as metaphor in art and popular wisdom( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The nine essays and more than ninety illustrations that comprise this volume reveal how visual imagery has played a significant role throughout history in reinforcing and establishing definitions of sickness and standards for physical well-being. Each author demonstrates how works of art and the imagery of popular culture both reflect and reinforce the power of medical beliefs to define and to limit human behavior, and how art and medicine work together to communicate social directives in support of a perceived common good. The essays range in topic from the seventeenth century to the present day, utilizing an interdisciplinary, contextual methodology that reconstructs the issues of an era and examines works of art against historical events and ideas."--Jacket
