Reflections in a looking glass : a centennial celebration of Lewis Carroll, photographer by Morton N Cohen( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 572 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beloved as the author of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, two of the most popular children's stories of all time, the Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (alias Lewis Carroll) was also one of the great photographers of children of the nineteenth century." "The photographs in this richly illustrated book - a number of them previously unpublished - reflect Carroll's lifelong fascination with children and their world. These remarkable portraits of his "child friends" were made between 1856 and 1880, during the height of the Victorian Age in England - many of them at Carroll's rooms at Oxford, where he was Mathematical Lecturer. Also included in this volume are Carroll's photographs of friends, family, and luminaries of the day, as well as the only four nude portraits that have come to light." "The central text, by Carroll biographer and leading scholar Morton N. Cohen, discusses the role of photography in Carroll's vast and diverse creative output. Cohen adds annotated captions and excerpts from Carroll's diaries and other writings to provide unique insight into the creative genius that produced the Alice books and other children's favorites."--Jacket

The Covarrubias circle : Nickolas Muray's collection of twentieth-century Mexican art( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Produced in conjunction with the Ransom Center's exhibition "Miguel Covarrubias: A Certain Clairvoyance," this volume contains color plates of virtually all the items in Nickolas Muray's collection of twentieth-century Mexican art. The majority of the works are by Covarrubias, while the excellent works by the other artists reflect the range of aesthetic shifts and modernist influences of the period in Mexico. Accompanying the plates are five original essays that establish Covarrubias's importance as a modernist impresario as influential in his sphere as Ezra Pound, T.S. Eliot, and Jean Cocteau were in theirs."--Jacket

Make it new : the rise of modernism by Harry Ransom Center( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What was Modernism, and why does it still matter? The term itself first gained currency in the 1930s, describing a kind of art that already may have peaked, some would say as early as 1922. Whatever its ups and downs in its own time, as the novelist Julian Barnes claims in one of the twenty essays commissioned for the present volume, Modernism never vanished. It remains our immovable feast." "Modernism was international in scope; it left its mark on all genres, from literature and painting to opera, dance, and architecture; it pushed the boundaries of what was artistically possible and aesthetically important; and finally, for all its destructive urges which it shared with the century itself, it was also celebrative." "This book is a response to the exhibition of the same name that opened at the Harry Ransom Center in October 2003. It includes original essays by such noted writers and artists as Russell Banks, Anita Desai, David Douglas Duncan, Elizabeth Hardwick, and Penelope Lively, which offer fresh perspectives on important Modernist figures, including William Gaddis, Ezra Pound, William Faulkner, E.M. Forster, Paul Robeson, Virginia Woolf, Henry James, Joseph Conrad, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Le Corbusier. In addition, essays by leading scholars in literature and art history focus on specific artifacts included in the exhibit. As the Center's Director, Thomas F. Staley, puts it in the Foreword, "Ours is an attempt not of definition but of discovery and rediscovery." Book and exhibition permit both reader and viewer to experience the textures, structures, and resonances which made the first part of the twentieth century so innovative that its art is still virtually synonymous with what "newness" means."--Jacket
Reading Magnum : a visual archive of the modern world by Steven D Hoelscher( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Magnum Photos archive-a collection of more than 200,000 photographs by some of the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries' greatest image makers-is the most comprehensive accumulation of prints made by the distinguished photo cooperative. Consistently and with striking artistry, Magnum's photographers have done more than simply document the far reaches of the globe; they have helped shape generations' understanding of the world around them. While many of its photographs have been widely published, until now no one has examined the Magnum archive itself. In Reading Magnum, experts from several fields investigate this visual archive, now residing at the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin, to discover how a select, influential group of visual authors has used the camera for an ambitious project of cultural interpretation and social commentary.0Exhibition: Ransom Center Galleries, Austin, USA (10.09.2013-05.01.2014)

Resurgent adventures with Britannia : personalities, politics and culture in Britain( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Resurgent Adventures with Britannia... draws upon a distinguished array of writers and scholars - historians, political scientists, journalists, novelists, biographers, and English literature specialists - to guide the reader through a fascinating labyrinth of British culture, history, and politics. They provide a unique insight into the pivotal themes, both political and cultural, which have shaped 20th century state and society. There is detailed consideration of the works of leading figures in art, literature, politics, and scholarship - including portraits of Hugh Trevor-Roper by Neal Ascherson, Nye Bevan by Kenneth O. Morgan, and Margaret Thatcher by Archie Brown - and how these stellar figures have been deeply affected by war, the imperial experience, decolonization, the enduring problems of the Middle East, Communism, the Cold War, and the British-America connections. And there are assessments by leading historians of statesmen, and episodes in global history, which have shaped the modern age. The result is a rich mix of original ideas, historical and literary allusion, personality, and anecdote, which together provide an intellectual adventure into the mainsprings of modern British and international society."--Publisher description
