Compass and Clock: Defining Moments in American Culture - gebunden oder broschiert

1999, ISBN: 9780810940963

ID: 58614087

New York: Harry N. Abrams. Hardcover. 0810940965 As a professor at Princeton University, visiting curator at the Metropolitan Museum, and former deputy director of the National Gallery, John Wilmerding has established himself as a preeminent scholar of American art history. In his current work, Compass and Clock: Defining Moments in American Culture, Wilmerding steps beyond the parameters of the strictly art-historical and offers a fresh perspective on American intellectual history. Compass and Clock focuses on three turning points in American history, the years around 1800, 1850, and 1900, and examines how their literary, architectural, and art-historical forces synergize and embody the mood of the expanding and maturing nation. Placing important works of literature, architecture, and visual arts in their cultural context, Wilmerding skillfully demonstrates how America expressed itself as it evolved as a nation in the 19th century. For example, by juxtaposing close readings of Melville</a's Moby Dick and Whitman's Leaves of Grass with discussion of formal and iconographical elements of Robert Mills's Washington Monument and the landscapes of Hugh Lane, he shows how each embodies the sense of expansiveness, self-confidence, and flourishing prosperity that defined America's self-image around 1850. Wilmerding proves himself equally comfortable and adept at literary examination and political analysis as he is at examination of visual arts and architecture. Extensive quotations from books and reproductions of paintings under analysis supplement the study. At the same time academically rigorous and conversational in tone, Compass and Clock provides important clues to the evolution of the U.S. as a nation and people. --Bertina Loeffler Sedlack From Library Journal Noted art historian Wilmerding has written a fascinating study of American culture by focusing on three pivotal periods--the beginning of the 19th century, the century's midpoint, and its close in 1900. Reviving the notion (less than fashionable in recent years) that there are such things as pinpointable historical turning points, Wilmerding takes these three moments as launch points for his engrossing and cross-disciplinary look at art, literature, architecture, and music. Weaving together commentary on artists, writers, and others, he both defines each moment and shows how it led to the next point in the century. Lavishly illustrated with examples of the art works discussed, as well as portraits of the writers, this volume is recommended for larger libraries with art or American culture collections. -Martin R. Kalfatovic, Smithsonian Inst. Libs., Washington, DC Copyright 1999 Reed Business Information, Inc. . Fine. 1999., Harry N. Abrams, 1999

ID: 978081094096

Through analysis of literature, art, and architecture within their cultural contexts, Wilmerding (American Art, Princeton University; and, Curator in the Departments of American Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York) focuses on three turning points in American history: 1800, when America began to fred its identity as a republic, 1850, a period of prosperity and growth; and 1900, a time of change and anxiety. He discusses great works of these three periods (including works by Thomas Jefferson, Charles Wilson Peale, George Caleb Bingham, Thomas Eakins, and Winslow Homer), finding common themes and complementary expressions in the images that writers and visual artists drew upon to convey the mood and vision of each distinctive era.
