  • 'New Woman' Revised : Painting and Gender Politics on Fourteenth Street

    In the years between the world wars, Manhattan's Fourteenth Street-Union Square district became a center for commercial, cultural, and political activities, and hence a sensitive barometer of the dramatic social changes of the period. It was here that four urban realist painters--Kenneth Hayes Miller, Reginald Marsh, Raphael Soyer, and Isabel Bishop--placed their images of modern "new women." Bargain stores, cheap movie theaters, pinball arcades, and radical political organizations were the backdrop for the women shoppers, office and store workers, and consumers of mass culture portrayed by these artists. Ellen Wiley Todd deftly interprets the painters' complex images as they were refracted through the gender ideology of the period.This is a work of skillful interdisciplinary scholarship, combining recent insights from feminist art history, gender studies, and social and cultural theory. Drawing on a range of visual and verbal representations as well as biographical and critical texts, Todd balances the historical context surrounding the painters with nuanced analyses of how each artist's image of womanhood contributed to the continual redefining of the "new woman's" relationships to men, family, work, feminism, and sexuality.

    A renowned French art critic has chosen one hundred of the world's greatest paintings from all periods and traditions of art. From Chinese calligraphy to the Mona Lisa, and from Mexican wall murals to Mondrian's Broadway Boogie Woogie, the multicultural and chronological scope of 100 Masterpieces of Painting offers a comprehensive approach to the development of painting. While other volumes offer a repetitive template of photos and text, 100 Masterpieces of Painting presents the paintings in a lively design that reflects the style of the individual artists, mimicking the evolving history of painting on the printed page. The author situates each work in the artist's oeuvre and establishes the role it played in the evolution of painting. Japanese prints, Indian paintings of the grottos of Ajanta, illuminated manuscript from the Book of Kells, Russian icons, and the works of the Great Masters—this is an essential addition to the library of any art lover.
