READING: Iedereen kent Karl Marx als een van de invloedrijkste denkers van de negentiende eeuw en als de man wiens levenswerk Het kapitaal de wereld zou veranderen. Liefde en kapitaal onthult echter zijn tumultueuze privéleven en schetst een portret van een revolutionair, een rokkenjager, een grappenmaker en bovenal een gepassioneerd man - zowel politiek als privé. Als arme student viel Marx voor Jenny, de dochter van een Pruisische baron, en zij en hun kinderen zijn hem ondanks alle tegenslagen en politieke obsessies altijd trouw gebleven. Het gezin zwierf in het kielzog van vader Karl jarenlang door Europa in een tijdperk van politieke spanningen, en naast zijn werk als intellectueel ontpopte Marx zich tot een beschermende vader en liefhebbende echtgenoot. Door gebruik te maken van nooit eerder toegankelijke bronnen biedt Liefde en kapitaal een intieme blik in de beproevingen, de ellende en de hartstochten van een man die, meer dan elke andere denker, vormgaf aan onze moderne opvattingen over werk, geld en sociale relaties. Succesvol biografe Mary Gabriel studeerde journalistiek in Amerika en Parijs en werkte daarna als redacteur bij Reuters in Washington en Londen. 'Liefde en kapitaal is een reusachtig, vaak aangrijpend boek. Het geeft een vermakelijk en evenwichtig portret van Karl Marx, zijn kleurrijke milieu van ballingen, freaks en revolutionairen, en van het nauwelijks bekende gezin van Marx. Gabriel geeft een levendig beeld van een worstelende, maniakale bohemien en intellectueel in de hoofdsteden van middennegentiende-eeuws Europa.' the new york times book review 'Gabriel geeft een magistrale weergave van het leven van Karl Marx en zijn vrouw. Met een vloeiende stijl die haar uitgebreide onderzoek niet verhult, biedt Gabriel ons de menselijke familiekant van een man die gewoonlijk gezien wordt als een berekenende theoreticus.' publishers weekly 'Gabriel stelt, terecht, dat de sleutel tot het begrijpen van wat Marx dreef niet alleen ligt in inzicht in de grote stromingen van zijn tijd, maar vooral in het begrip van zijn chaotische privéleven en de mensen die hij liefhad.' washington independent review of books


The Book The Modern Woman and Abstract Expressionism
The Author Aliza Rachel Edelman
The Publisher
Release Date2006
Genre Abstract expressionism
Pages 978
ISBN 0542953013
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: This dissertation investigates the dominant ways that three women artists---Ethel Schwabacher, Elaine de Kooning, and Grace Hartigan---struggled to define their social and artistic identity in relation to (and sometimes in contradistinction from) Abstract Expressionism and the contemporary Modern Woman ideals of the 1950s. The postwar Modern Woman embodied various roles by assuming new professional and financial responsibilities, identifying with broader sexual behaviors, and either managing or completely rejecting marriage and motherhood. Chapter One presents the subject of the Modern Woman and the tensions of "feminine ascendancy" through women's identification with multiple roles during and after World War II, and through the appearance of women's adoption of masculine behavior. I argue that the contemporary fears of feminine ascendancy and masculine attributions parallel the criticism and challenges for women artists in the patriarchal arena of Abstract Expressionism.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Abstract Expressionist works on paper from the permanent collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art are presented in this volume, which documents the wealth of the Museum's holdings in that area. Many of them are published here for the first time, and several are recent additions to the collection. All are illustrated in full-page color reproductions that show the nuances of each work in great detail. The Abstract Expressionists are best known for their paintings and sculptures, and virtually all of the many publications about these artists concentrate on those large-scale works. This unique catalogue deals exclusively with their smaller, more intimate works on paper, providing many new insights about the routes that led to the Abstract Expressionists' innovative artistic accomplishments. The nineteen artists included are William Baziotes, James Brooks, Elaine de Kooning, Willem de Kooning, Arshile Gorky, Adolph Gottlieb, Philip Guston, Gerome Kamrowski, Franz Kline, Robert Motherwell, Barnett Newman, Jackson Pollock, Richard Pousette-Dart, Theodore Roszak, Mark Rothko, Anne Ryan, David Smith, Theodoros Stamos, and Mark Tobey. Each of them is discussed in a separate essay, which encompasses information about the artist's background and development, commentary about the importance of drawing in his or her oeuvre, and an analysis of each work in the selection. Also included in the essays is technical information about a number of the individual works that enhances understanding of the variety and originality of these artists' media and techniques.

READING: "This is the book on women's art I've been waiting for--smart, deeply rooted, and up-to-date, with an overdue focus on women of color that fills in the historical cracks. Read it and run with it."--Lucy R. Lippard, author of "The Pink Glass Swan: Selected Essays on Feminist Art " "More than merely beautiful and ground-breaking, "Art/ Women/ California 1950-2000" is also about the enriching interventions created by diverse women artists, the effect of whose work is not only far-reaching, but has also opened up the very definition of American art. It is about intellectual interdisciplinality and the dialectical relationship between art and social context. It is about the way various California cultures--Native, Latino, Asian, feminist, immigrant, politically active, and virtual, which are so different from the trope of the Western cowboy--have intervened in that entity we imagine as 'America.' "--Elaine Kim, editor of "Dangerous Women: Gender and Korean Nationalism " "Rich and provocative. A pleasure to read and to look at."--Linda Nochlin, author of "The Body in Pieces: The Fragment as a Metaphor of Modernity" "This book should greatly help everyone understand the remarkably diversified evolution of art in California, which is largely due to the great influx of women and the transformative effect of a new feminist consciousness."--Arthur C. Danto, author of "Philosophizing Art: Selected Essays"

READING: This is a complete reappraisal of Lee Krasner (1908-1984), who, along with her husband, Jackson Pollock, was among the artists who launched the New York School of painting after World War II. One of the few critically recognized female Abstract Expressionists of her generation, she has emerged as an essential figure in postwar American art.This lavishly illustrated book, the companion to a major traveling exhibition, takes a fresh look at Krasner and highlights the striking originality and complexity of her work. Krasner saw her art as an open-ended exploration and a dialogue with a wide range of artistic, literary, and cultural voices. Complete with never-before-published excerpts from the diary of writer B. H. Friedman, a longtime associate of Krasner's who provides priceless insights into this pivotal period of American history, this book is essential for any art library.This book and the exhibition it accompanies were developed by Independent Curators International (ICI), a non-profit organization,that creates innovative, provocative traveling exhibitions of contemporary art that have been presented in museums and university galleries worldwide.

Genre Social Science
Pages 224
ISBN 9781135748951
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: This collection of essays challenges conceptions of "high" modernism, its preoccupation with style at the expense of issues such as race, class and gender, and its exclusive focus both on predominately male writers, poetry and prose fiction by highlighting the diversity of cultural production in the modernist period. This book focusses specifically on women's cultural production, covering a wide range of arts and genres including chapters on painting, theatre, and magazines. The book investigates how women usually constructed as "others", themselves construct others in their work in a period prominently concerned with the construction of self as an issue. This diversity offers a new format of reading modernism in a cross-disciplinary context.
