Archaeologies of Vision: Foucault and Nietzsche on Seeing and Saying
Gary Shapiro
0226750477
May 2003
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
While many acknowledge that Friedrich Nietzsche and Michel Foucault have redefined our notions of time and history, few recognize the crucial role that "the infinite relation" between seeing and saying (as Foucault put it) plays in their work. Gary Shapiro reveals, for the first time, the full extent of Nietzsche and Foucault's concern with the visual.

Shapiro explores the whole range of Foucault's writings on visual art, including the theory of visual resistance, the concept of the phantasm or simulacrum, and his interrogation of the relation of painting, language, and power in artists from Bosch to Warhol. Shapiro also shows through an excavation of little-known writings that the visual is a major theme in Nietzsche's thought. In addition to explaining the significance of Nietzsche's analysis of Raphael,...

French Painting in the Golden Age (World of Art Series)
Christopher Allen
0500203709
November 2003
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
The seventeenth century has always been considered the golden age—the grand siècle—of French culture. The reigns of Louis XIII and Louis XIV witnessed an unprecedented flowering of literature and philosophy, of music, architecture, sculpture, and painting. Some of the greatest names in the history of art belong to this period: Nicolas Poussin and Claude Lorraine, as well as Georges de La Tour, the Le Nain brothers, and Charles Le Brun. Yet the subject matter and formal conventions most prized at the time make it difficult for the modern viewer to appreciate their aims, to differentiate them, and to judge success or failure. Thanks to new, sympathetic research, it is now possible to set the major figures within the framework of the concerns and theoretical debates of the seventeenth century itself....

Paul Bril (Pictura Nova IV): The Drawings
Louisa Wood Ruby
2503505775
September 1999
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
After defining Bril as a draughtsman, this study clarifies aspects of his working methods and determines the types and functions of his drawings. It places Bril in the context of contemporary landscape draughtmanship and analyzes Bril's specific contribution to the evolution of the genre in Rome, from the mannerist views of Girolamo Muziano to the pastoral landscapes and seascapes of Claude Lorrain. Bril's position as a guiding force to two generations of Netherlandish artists who visited Rome and the influence Bril exerted on the development of landscape is also investigated. The final section of the study is a catalogue raisonné of Bril's drawings. While any catalogue raisonné is by nature evolving, the attempt to establish a secure canon is very important in finally placing Bril and his contemporaries in...
