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.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Due to the many misunderstandings regarding the subject of authority in both the world and the church today, this book had to be written to dispel many of those dubious ideas about, and misuses of, authority in both realms. In place of such erroneous concepts and practices, this book offers literally hundreds of Scripture passages that address the issue with divine truth, which cannot be lightly dismissed. Thus, this book dispels the prevailing darkness surrounding that subject by turning on the gospel light. All those who are honest with themselves and God will surely read and heed!

Download or read book From Homicide to Slavery : Studies in American Culture written by David Brion Davis Sterling Professor of History Yale University and published by Oxford University Press, USA. This book was released on 1986-11-20 with total page 322 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: For more than twenty years David Brion Davis has been recognized as a leading authority on the moral and ideological responses to slavery in the Western world. From Homicide to Slavery, Davis's first book of collected essays, brings together selections reflecting his wide-ranging interests in colonial history, Afro-American history, the social sciences, and American literature. The essays are interconnected by Davis's central concern with violence, irrationality, and the definition of moral limits during a period when Americans believed they were breaking free from historical constraints and acquiring new powers of self-perfection. Topics range from a socially revealing murder trial in 1843 to debates over capital punishment, movements of counter-subverison, the iconography of race, the cowboy as an American hero, the portrayal of violence in American literature, the historiography of slavery, and the British and American antislavery movements.

Book excerpt: What was different about the environments that women created as architects, designers and clients at a time when they were gaining increasing political and social status in a male world? Through a series of case studies, Women's Places: Architecture and Design 1860-1960, examines in detail the professional and domestic spaces created by women who had money and the opportunity to achieve their ideal. Set against a background of accepted notions of modernity relating to design and architecture of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, this book provides a fascinating insight into women's social aspirations and identities. It offers new information and new interpretations in the study of gender, material culture and the built environment in the period 1860-1960.

Download or read book Creating the Artful Home written by Karen Zukowski and published by Gibbs Smith. This book was released on 2006 with total page 188 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Creating the Artful Home: the Aesthetic Movement and Its Influence on Home Decor covers the history of a movement that emphasized "art for art's sake"-and the influence it had on home decor. The Aesthetic Movement in America lasted just a few decades (1870-1900), and served mainly as a bridge between the high Victorian sensibility and the radical shift to the Arts & Crafts style. The movement germinated among artists who used opulent color, decorative patterning, and lavish materials simply for the aesthetic effects they could evoke. It was commonly held that a home that expressed an artful, harmonious soul would instill high aesthetic and moral merit in its inhabitants. The Aesthetic Movement in America helped to popularize the idea that everyone should be able to enjoy beautiful, well-made homes and furnishings-not just the very wealthy. Artful homes could be composed from brilliant antique store finds, discriminating department store purchases, and gems hand-made by the ladies of the house. It was the moment when people embraced the idea that only a beautiful home could be a happy home. Karen Zukowski delves into the movement's establishment, evolution, and main characters, and shows how today's homes can incorporate Aesthetic principles: Through suggestion rather than statement, sensuality, massive use of symbols, and synaesthetic effects-that is, correspondence between words, colors and music. How influential designers such as Clarence Cook and Charles Eastlake popularized the idea that beautiful homes with tasteful furnishings could be available to practically everyone How today's designers, manufacturers, and retailers deploy the very same stylistic markers of the Aesthetic Movement: rich color, layered pattern and texture, mixtures of historical motifs
