Summary Book Review DIABOLICAL DESIGNS :

Download or read book DIABOLICAL DESIGNS written by Deanna Marohn Bendix and published by Smithsonian Inst Press. This book was released on 1995 with total page 360 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "In Diabolical Designs, Deanna Marohn Bendix chronicles James McNeill Whistler's career as an "agitator" for elevating design. Demonstrating that Whistler's design ideas - seen most fully in his Peacock Room - were central to his entire artistic enterprise, Bendix reveals the artist's prominence in the Victorian design reform movement. She unearths rare documentation, public notices (both laudatory and critical), and written appreciation by his colleagues of at least twenty-five interiors designed by Whistler." "Noting that many of his paintings were called "arrangements" - indeed, Whistler's Mother is actually titled Arrangement in Grey and Black - Bendix traces the extension of Whistler's holistic view of art to include the painting's frame and the entire setting in which the work would be seen. His designs for private and public spaces emphasized plain walls, light colors, and empty spaces; his stark interiors not only contrasted dramatically with the fussy Victorian style but pointed the way toward modern interior design." "Bendix compares Whistler's role as a design influence to that of his contemporaries John Ruskin, William Morris, Edward Godwin, and his friend and rival Oscar Wilde. By exploring both well-known and obscure aspects of his career against the backdrop of the design mania of his time and milieu, she reveals Whistler's singular contributions to design renewal in Victorian England."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Summary Book Review Women in the Seventeenth-Century Quaker Community :

Download or read book Women in the Seventeenth-Century Quaker Community written by Catie Gill and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2017-03-02 with total page 256 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Focussing on Quaker pamphlet literature of the commonwealth and restoration period, Catie Gill seeks to explore and explain women’s presence as activists, writers, and subjects within the early Quaker movement. Women in the Seventeenth-Century Quaker Community draws on contemporary resources such as prophetic writing, prison narratives, petitions, and deathbed testimonies to produce an account of women’s involvement in the shaping of this religious movement. The book reveals that, far from being of marginal importance, women were able to exploit the terms in which Quaker identity was constructed to create roles for themselves, in public and in print, that emphasised their engagement with Friends’ religious and political agenda. Gill’s evidence suggests that women were able to mobilise contemporary notions of femininity when pursuing active roles as prophets, martyrs, mothers, and political activists. The book’s focus on collective, Quaker identities, which arises from its analysis of multiple-authored texts, is key to its claims that gender issues have to be considered when analysing the sect’s emergent system of values, and Gill assesses the representation of women in male-authored texts in addition to female writers’ attitudes to agency. A bibliography that, for the first time, lists men and women’s involvement as contributors as well as authors to Quaker pamphlets provides a valuable resource for scholars of seventeenth-century radicalism.
