Titre : Dance and American Art: A Long Embrace (...

Éditeur : University of Wisconsin Press, United States

Date d'édition : 2012

Reliure : Hardback

Etat du livre : New

Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. From ballet to burlesque, from the frontier jig to the jitterbug, Americans have always loved watching dance, whether in grand ballrooms, on Mississippi riverboats, or in the streets. Dance and American Art is an innovative look at the elusive, evocative nature of dance and the American visual artists who captured it through their paintings, sculpture, photography, and prints from the early nineteenth century through the mid-twentieth century. The scores of artists discussed include many icons of American art: Winslow Homer, George Caleb Bingham, Mary Cassatt, James McNeill Whistler, Alexander Calder, Joseph Cornell, Edward Steichen, David Smith, and others. As a subject for visual artists, dance has given new meaning to America s perennial myths, cherished identities, and most powerful dreams. Their portrayals of dance and dancers, from the anonymous to the famous Anna Pavlova, Isadora Duncan, Loie Fuller, Josephine Baker, Martha Graham have testified to the enduring importance of spatial organization, physical pattern, and rhythmic motion in creating aesthetic form. Through extensive research, sparkling prose, and beautiful color reproductions, art historian Sharyn R. Udall draws attention to the ways that artists portrayals of dance have defined the visual character of the modern world and have embodied culturally specific ideas about order and meaning, about the human body, and about the diverse fusions that comprise American culture.

Synopsis :

From ballet to burlesque, from the frontier jig to the jitterbug, Americans have always loved watching dance, whether in grand ballrooms, on Mississippi riverboats, or in the streets. "Dance and American Art" is an innovative look at the elusive, evocative nature of dance and the American visual artists who captured it through their paintings, sculpture, photography, and prints from the early nineteenth century through the mid-twentieth century. The scores of artists discussed include many icons of American art: Winslow Homer, George Caleb Bingham, Mary Cassatt, James McNeill Whistler, Alexander Calder, Joseph Cornell, Edward Steichen, David Smith, and others.
As a subject for visual artists, dance has given new meaning to America's perennial myths, cherished identities, and most powerful dreams. Their portrayals of dance and dancers, from the anonymous to the famous--Anna Pavlova, Isadora Duncan, Loie Fuller, Josephine Baker, Martha Graham--have testified to the enduring importance of spatial organization, physical pattern, and rhythmic motion in creating aesthetic form.
Through extensive research, sparkling prose, and beautiful color reproductions, art historian Sharyn R. Udall draws attention to the ways that artists' portrayals of dance have defined the visual character of the modern world and have embodied culturally specific ideas about order and meaning, about the human body, and about the diverse fusions that comprise American culture.

Critique: ""Dance and American Art" is a visual and intellectual delight: a lavishly illustrated and eloquently written overview that traces the longstanding fascination America's artists have had with dance from the nation's beginnings to the present day. From pictures of Shaker religious practices, minstrelsy, and folk dancing, to paintings, sculptures, and photographs of modern performance arts, this far-reaching study admirably positions dance in America's visual landscape and simultaneously accounts for its meaning on social, cultural, and political terms. Highly recommended."--Erika Doss, author of "Twentieth-Century American Art"
