He had a talent for drawing and an interest in birds, and he would spend the next thirty-five years traveling to the remotest regions of his new country—often alone and on foot—to render his avian subjects on paper. The works of art he created gave the world its idea of America. They gave America its idea of itself.
It examines the way in which Stoppard playfully temporalizes Duchamp's dynamic concept of space and confronts traditional and avant-garde positions of art. A continuation of After Magritte and an anticipation of Travesties , Stoppard's Artist Descending a Staircase is a brilliant series of contradictory caricatures voicing its author's often repeated and sometimes revised conviction: "In any community of a thousand souls there will be nine hundred doing the work, ninety doing well, nine doing good, and one lucky dog painting or writing about the other nine hundred and ninety-nine.

He had been a rather eclectic painter until then, seemingly uncommitted, and not too gifted either. But the production bracketed by those dates displays an extraordinary and enigmatic concern for painting, Cubist in appearance, yet invested with an irony and an eroticism absent in orthodox Cubism. It is as if, quite suddenly, a compelling desire to establish his identity as a painter set in, and as if he understood, albeit unconsciously, that Cubism was both a mandatory path toward this identity and a transitional style which avant-garde art would soon abandon, and which he would have to betray at the same time that he adopted it. But once you are born, once you have witnessed your own birth-to-painting, have taken a revenge against uneven talent and asserted your name as a painter, why do it again? For it may well be that in industrialized society the specialized craft called painting has become useless in the face of mechanization and division of labor, as they replace the craftsman in most of his social and economic functions, and that it must be felt as impossible by whoever has the ambition to push art beyond those functions and have it carry on a meaningful tradition. Suprematism was the practice of that idea, and so was Neoplasticism.
Duchamp has buried himself for many years in the propagation of his achievements through the media of printed reproductions and certified copies, so that now we begin to accept the substitute as the work. Richard Hamilton, 1. The image served as a frame for the discussion, but it could also be said that the two protagonists framed the work. After the interview was televised the BBC gave the transparency to Hamilton, a detail that is far from incidental given the role later played by The Large Glass in connecting the lives and legacies of both artists. The work, a complex and ironic representation of human lovemaking as a mechanistic and endlessly frustrating process, was made using oil, lead wire, lead foil, dust and varnish on two large panels of glass, which together make the piece nearly three metres high and two metres wide. Arensberg bought it in Dreier so that it could remain in New York and Duchamp could continue to work on it.
Biographies of artists
This study explores the work of Western avant-garde writers who traveled to and wrote about Asia and North Africa. Though exoticist in outlook, many of these writers were also anti-colonialist and thus avoided some of the pitfalls of academic orientalism by assuming an aesthetics of diversity while employing strategies of provocation and reciprocity. As a survey of works on travel including essays, novels, poems, and plays , the book challenges or modifies many postcolonial assumptions about Western writers on the Orient: from the French Surrealists to the American Beats and even transnational authors of the new millennium.
The dominant scholarly reception of the Hellenic heritage provided further arguments for the recognition of the hegemonic visual angle. The persistent conviction that the master sense is associated with the eye stands in opposition to the Hebraic privilege granted to the ear and the modern hierarchy of senses placing sight behind hearing and touch Jay, , The Hellenic philosophical tradition marked its influence also on the Christian doctrine which resulted in what modern media studies call transcodification of references from the aural code into those of the visual and hence the Gospel of Saint John says, "God is Light" The use of light in medieval and later sacred art, notably architecture, has been extensively researched.
Meticulously researched and compellingly written.

At first inspection, its meaning and import are utterly opaque, impossible even to speculate upon. The story of how Erased de Kooning Drawing came into being is central to its reception and reputation, and cannot be separated from the work itself. Though it is often discussed as a bombshell that detonated in the art world in , the drawing in fact gained its reputation much more slowly, as critics and artists considered and reconsidered the implications of the odd, nearly unfathomable artistic choice central to its making. He had tried erasing one of his own drawings but found the results lacking. He became convinced that the only way to create a work of art through erasure would be to start with a drawing by an artist of universally recognized significance.
