The culture of diagram by John B Bender( )

13 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,804 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Culture of Diagram is about visual thinking. Exploring a terrain where words meet pictures and formulas meet figures, the book foregrounds diagrams as tools for blurring those boundaries to focus on the production of knowledge as process.-publisher description

Mapping Benjamin : the work of art in the digital age( Book )

13 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since its publication in 1936, Walter Benjamin's "Artwork" essay has become a canonical text about the status and place of the fine arts in modern mass culture. Benjamin was especially concerned with the ability of new technologies--notably film, sound recording, and photography--to reproduce works of art in great number. Benjamin could not have foreseen the explosion of imagery and media that has occurred during the past fifty years. Does Benjamin's famous essay still speak to this new situation? That is the question posed by the editors of this book to a wide range of leading scholars and thinkers across a spectrum of disciplines in the humanities. The essays gathered here do not hazard a univocal reply to that question; rather they offer a rich, wide-ranging critique of Benjamin's position that refracts and reflects contemporary thinking about the ethical, political, and aesthetic implications of life in the digital age."--Publisher
Romantic Paris : histories of a cultural landscape, 1800-1850 by Michael Marrinan( Book )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Romantic Paris is a richly illustrated survey of cultural life in Paris during some of the most tumultuous decades of the city's history. Between the coups d'état of Napoléon Bonaparte and of his nephew, Louis-Napoléon, Paris weathered extremes of political and economic fortune. Once the shining capital of a pan-European empire, it was overrun by foreign armies. Projects for grand public works were delayed and derailed by plague, armed uprisings, and civil war. At the same time, Paris was the theater of a revolution in the arts that challenged classical culture by depicting the vagaries of contemporary life and the thrill of unbridled experimentation. "Romantic Paris" produced Delacroix's Liberty Leading the People and Courbet's Burial at Ornans. It was both the setting and inspiration for Hugo's Les Misérables and The Hunchback of Notre-Dame. Meyerbeer's Robert le Diable set new standards for operatic productions, and audiences thrilled to the virtuoso performances of Paganini and Liszt, Talma and Taglioni. Established patterns of living, eating, dressing, and sociability were retooled for new urban spaces, new modes of personal mobility, and new forms of public self-presentation. The cultural legacy of Romantic Paris includes a museum that shelters fragments rescued from the rubble of the Revolution, as well as the display of masterpieces, open to one and all, that we visit today as the Louvre. In addition, this period contributed an architectural legacy that now gives Paris its distinct and world-renowned reputation as a cultural and artistic center. In Romantic Paris, Michael Marrinan plots the zigzag trajectory of the monuments, spaces, and habits of a city that looks both to the past and the future with all the optimism, self-doubts, and creative energy of a culture poised at the threshold of modernity."--Book cover

Gustave Caillebotte : painting the Paris of naturalism, 1872-1887 by Michael Marrinan( Book )

7 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gustave Caillebotte (1848 1894), the son of a wealthy businessman, is perhaps best known as the painter who organized and funded several of the groundbreaking exhibitions of the Impressionist painters, collected their works, and ensured the Impressionists presence in the French national museums by bequeathing his own personal collection. Trained at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts and sharing artistic sympathies with his renegade friends, Caillebotte painted a series of extraordinary pictures inspired by the look and feel of modern Paris that also grappled with his own place in the Parisian art scene. 'Gustave Caillebotte: Painting the Paris of Naturalism, 1872 1887' is the first book to study the life and artistic development of this painter in depth and in the context of the urban life and upper-class Paris that shaped the man and his work. Michael Marrinan's ambitious study draws upon new documents and establishes compelling connections between Caillebotte's painting and literature, commerce, and technology. It offers new ways of thinking about Paris and its changing development in the nineteenth century, exploring the cultural context of Parisian bachelor life and revealing layers of meaning in upscale privilege ranging from haute cuisine to sport and relaxation. Marrinan has written what is sure to be a central text for the study of nineteenth-century art and culture."--Publisher description

Distant terrains and decorative fictions : describing Japan in Second-Empire France by Emily Eastgate Brink( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation reveals how Japanese imports participated in a new discourse on objects in 1860s Paris. Looking to the specific political and aesthetic context of the Second Empire, this project reconsiders how the descriptive practices of the 1860s determined the early French encounter with Japanese things. Description places new attention on the communicative properties of inanimate objects and dominates the aesthetic and commercial culture of Second-Empire France. This culture of description materializes in naturalist novels, exhibition catalogs, expansive encyclopedias, republican literature, still-life painting, and portraiture during the 1860s and emerges as the primary framework for ordering and understanding the foreign culture of Japan. Imagined through its objects and inscribed into these various descriptive forms, Japan appeals to a French context that finds new political and aesthetic meaning in the accumulation and representation of things. By mapping the early French encounter with Japan across a variety of material forms, this project complicates the standard narrative of Japonsime to suggest that Japan is both politically and culturally encoded through the description of its objects in 1860s France
