Modernism and the feminine voice : O'Keeffe and the women of the Stieglitz circle by Kathleen A Pyne( Book )

13 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This opulently illustrated book reveals how Alfred Stieglitz's search for a pure, essential "woman in art" led him to several women before his vision found ultimate expression in Georgia O'Keeffe, whom Stieglitz portrayed as the shining, liberated feminine figure of his movement. Modernism and the Feminine Voice explores a group of extraordinary women who developed their voices through an affiliation with the Stieglitz circle - Gertrude Kasebier, Pamela Colman Smith, Anne Brigman, and Katharine Nash Rhoades - and shows how these artists helped define the woman modernist through their lives and their individual photographs and paintings. Profoundly revising Stieglitz's story of the woman modernist as embodied in the person and imagery of Georgia O'Keeffe, this pioneering book demonstrates that O'Keeffe was one voice among several which deserve recognition as the vanguard of American modernism. Kathleen Pyne adds fascinating but overlooked material to the history of modernism in New York with this book, which accompanies a major exhibition of the artists' works. In contrast to previous views of O'Keeffe's self-identity as that of either a forceful, hard-working professional or a strong, erotically charged woman, Pyne posits a new theory, that O'Keeffe had a secret self-identity that was indebted to Stieglitz's notion of the feminine voice as intuitive and childlike yet resistant to his eroticizing."--Publisher's description
Art and the higher life : painting and evolutionary thought in late nineteenth-century America by Kathleen A Pyne( Book )

9 editions published between 1996 and 2015 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the nineteenth century drew to a close, many Americans were deeply troubled by the theories of Charles Darwin, which contradicted both traditional Christian teachings and the general view of human supremacy over nature, and by an influx of foreign immigrants, who challenged the supremacy of the old Anglo-Saxon elite. In response, many people drew comfort from the theories of British philosopher Herbert Spencer, who held that human society inevitably develops towards higher and more spiritual forms. In this illuminating study, Kathleen Pyne explores how Spencer's theories came to influence a generation of American artists. She shows how the painters of the 1880s and 1890s, particularly John La Farge, James McNeill Whistler, Thomas Dewing and the Boston school, and the impressionist painters of the Ten, developed a kind of art that was dedicated to social refinement and spiritual ideals and to defending the embattled position of the Anglo-Saxon elite of which they were members. Linking visual culture to the problematic conditions of American life, the book thus offers a radically new interpretation of the most important trends in late nineteenth-century American painting. It will be of interest to a wide interdisciplinary audience in American intellectual, social, and art history

Immanence, transcendence, and impressionism in late nineteenth-century american painting. (volumes i-iii) by Kathleen A Pyne( )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation examines the painted embodiments of America's dominant philosophical, religious, and nationalist ideologies in the 1880s and 1890s. The liberal Protestant belief that the nation's evolution to a perfected state of life was immanent in the processes of culture provides the context for the discussion. The tonalist mode was viewed as a means of providing transcendent experience, in support of progress toward that higher order of life, while these beliefs affected Americans' reception and
