The 'New Look' as exemplified most prominently in the red, full-skirted gown worn by Marilyn Monroe in a scene set in a powder room featured sweeping skirts, a tiny cinched waist, and an exaggerated bosom.
It was an ultra-feminine ideal that stood in stark contrast to the more practical, comfortable, and androgynous appearance of orld ar II fashion. The style of the New Look was far more restrictive and made women look more like artificial adornments than the ideal of 'Rosie the Riveter. Representations of Female Sexuality in the 's. Prior to the war, the world was in a the most severe economic downturn that anyone had experienced in modern times, whereas the 's were one of the most prosperous times in American history.
The prewar years were fraught with struggle for between the wealthy elite and the poor. There was a relatively small middle class that served the wealthy and helped to dominate the poor. After the war, people, as a whole, had more economic opportunity, and the middle class grew astronomically. The war also separated America's ideas of what a woman was from what she could become. During the war women had been required to work in factories doing jobs that were normally reserved for men.
Women could be teachers, nurses, or mothers before , but…… [Read More]. Art can come in many shapes, sizes, and mediums, yet one thing that all art has in common is its ability to connect to individuals and enable them to experience catharsis, that is illicit an emotional response. Some of the most awe-inspiring works of art are architectural such as the Lincoln Memorial, which bookmarks the National Mall in Washington, D.
The Lincoln Memorial is impressive and its sheer magnitude and size was unexpected. Walking up to the memorial, I realized that it was much larger than I had anticipated and that much like a temple, the actual memorial is located at the top of a series of steps. It was nothing like looking at the back of a penny or a five-dollar bill. The Lincoln Memorial successfully combining the concepts of form and function through its structure Pearson Publication, Inc. The memorial itself was designed by Henry…… [Read More].
Directed by Billy Wilder, a legendary director in Hollywood, the film was shot in black and white, and uses straightforward lighting, camera shots, and editing to create a film that is visual, but never takes anything away from the cast, the script, and the setting. It is the acting and the music that all add up to make this film memorable, and it is an excellent example of when to use unique camera and lighting techniques, and when not to.
Most of the camera shots in this film are straightforward. There are several deep-focus scenes, such as the pivotal scene in the garage when the car careens into the garage, and then the men are lined up against the wall. The lighting in this scene is dark in the…… [Read More]. Venus Role in Art. Venus in Art Introduction to Venus and Aphrodite: Throughout history, Venus has long been a source of inspiration for artists. Her representation of love and beauty has been captured in various mediums, from the visual arts of paintings and sculpture to music and drama; Venus has served as a universal symbol of beauty and has embodied the secrets of love.
Central to understanding how artists have been able to use her as such a representation of love and beauty, is understanding Venus and Aphrodite's roles in history and Greek mythology.
Venus is an ancient Italian goddess closely associated with fields and gardens and later identified by the Romans with the Greek goddess of love, Aphrodite. Although the question as to how Venus came to be identified with so important a deity as Aphrodite remains unanswered, Venus' identification with Aphrodite is certain and because of this is often depicted in art.
Star Power Influence of Actors. Kramer" is so intriguing because there is never the necessity to choose sides, although the film is unconventional for that time in that it was a woman leaving her husband and child as opposed to the man. The film shows a struggle between two unhappy individuals who are striving to find themselves -- Ted struggles in his career, and Joanna feels that she lost herself upon entering into the marriage. While this film belongs more to Hoffman than Streep, what is the most interesting in terms of social and cultural ideas is that Streep's argument at the end of the custody trial is a very simple "appeal-to -- the fact that motherhood is powerfully persuasive as a social institution" Malloy Streep's portrayal of Joanna Kramer shows some very important issues of this time period such…… [Read More].
Importance of Humanities in the Professions. Humanities Importance of the humanities in the professions: A comparison of "Paul's Case," Muriel's Wedding and Andy Warhol's rendition of Marilyn Monroe The modern concept of 'celebrity' is that anyone can be famous, provided that he or she embodies an ideal of glamour, using material trappings like clothing and possessions to show his or her 'specialness.
The idea is paradoxical -- on one hand, celebrities are special, on the other hand the media suggests everyone can be a celebrity and 'famous for 15 minutes' if they buy the right item. This can be seen in "Paul's Case" by Willa Cather, about a boy who feels as if he is above his classmates. Paul desires to have a celebrity-like status, based upon his perceptions of himself as having innately refined tastes. But this costs money, and Paul is unwilling…… [Read More].
The Boundary of Art Andy. The Curwen press, Kinsman, Jane, "Soup can mania. Andy Warhol and his world: Nykredit, Image Source Image 1: Master of Mixing Art and. The argument that I have been making is a twofold one. The first branch of this argument is that Pop Art, while it incorporates ordinary images and commercial motifs and tropes just as does commercial design, it does so in different ways and for different reasons than does purely commercial work.
It is because the motivations of the Pop Artist and I suppose we might say of the art objects themselves are so different from the motivations of commercial designers that Pop Art must qualify as art. Rather than simply giving his audiences pretty pictures, arhol made them work to understand his creations -- and this seems to me to be a pretty good definition of what art is and what the artist does. And once this condition is met, it really does not matter how much if any money the artist makes from the work.
Yes, arhol ended up…… [Read More]. Incorporate three of the factors that influence meaning as critical criterion. Smirnoff's campaign was a trend-setting advertising campaign that boosted the product and enhanced its worldwide selling power.
This advertisement for the world's best selling vodka was based on spectacular or illusion advertising. The theme -- this bottle can change reality.
This is a good example of category and brand development tools that set the stage for some of the more critical criteria for producing a successful advertisement. What is the advertisement saying to audiences? And what was its intended message? In all probability, the message s could be perceived differently by different populations.
The hidden message could be "American loves Smirnoff"; or "be true to the red, white and…… [Read More]. Wore Lipstick to My Mastectomy. Instead, her cancer diagnosis provided a catalyst for her to investigate the relationship between beauty, sexuality, and feminine power in America.
The resulting discussion, and Lucas' affirmation that all women should be able to wear red lipstick, is extremely uplifting.
One of the most interesting aspects of the book is that Lucas uses Marilyn Monroe, probably the preeminent example of American female sexuality, as an example throughout the book. Monroe is one of those rare sex symbols who is not frequently broken down into parts, but is taken as the whole as an eminently sexual creature.
Furthermore, years after her death, most people are aware that the sex-pot side of Marilyn Monroe was an affectation that a young girl used to achieve commercial and financial success in Hollywood. Lucas breaks Monroe down into two aspects; the breasts and the lipstick. Looking at a pre-surgical society, she shows how women could…… [Read More]. Art Pop Art An Aesthetic.
Like many of the Pop Artists, Hockney frequently experimented with the media of his work, delving into both photography and film, and even set design. Photography, film, and other new media have proved to be a 'natural' outlet for Pop Artists.
Since Pop Art cannibalizes the subject matter of popular culture, using the other tools of popular culture such as reproduction and the moving image seems like a natural progression. Some of David Hockney's most brilliant, acclaimed and interesting work have come from his use of collages, or composite photographs, designed to challenge the limitations of still life.
Hockney said he strove to create a 'complete' picture of a moment in time in photography -- an impossible task, perhaps, but deliberately so. His use of composites also shows how a single moment, like a conversation, is made up of a multiplicity of perspectives "David Hockney -- Photocollage," h2g2, Warhol and Koons How Does.
But the cool tone of the images in arhol's works is one reason why a viewer might be tempted to read a kind of backhanded affection for advertising and consumption in arhol's series, as well as satirical parody. For instance, a viewer might ask, is there, in the repetition of stars' faces such as Elizabeth Taylor, Jackie O. And of course Marilyn, as well as Marlon…… [Read More]. Andy Warhol and the irmingham Race Riot Andy Warhol is considered one of the most important and influential artists of the Twentieth Century.
His art focused not only on creating new modes and styles of artistic expression but they also functioned as insightful social critiques and commentary.
To a large extent all of his artworks are an oblique and sometimes harshly direct unveiling of modern consciousness, society and the media. He was famous for using the techniques and styles of the media to expose the harsh realities of the society around him. However it is in the directly political works and images of society's violence and discrimination that he is at his most expressive and influential as an artist.
Andrew Warhola, was born August 6, in Pittsburg. He came from a deprived background and was eventually able to attend a commercial design course at Pittsburgh's Carnegie Institute of Technology. Henri Cartier Bresson and Tacita. However, I think we also share the common elements of having been very highly-trained as artists. Therefore, we share a very solid classical artistic background, and I think that comes through in the strength of our works, even though we approach our work with a very different style.
Tacita is absolutely right about a shared cultural impact. World War II changed the face of Europe. The Holocaust was not the first time something atrocious had occurred, but it was the first time there was a genuine threat that someone like Hitler could rule the world.
It was also a moment of striking shame for so much of the world. So many countries…… [Read More]. Borders Visible and Invisible Presentation of 3 Artworks. Visible and Invisible-Presentation of 3 Artworks Borders of gender: Artwork that questions the way women are represented Depicting the female form has been central to the development of estern art, yet women have often been denied the means to create art themselves.
Kruger takes existing photographs and images of popular culture and reconstitutes them into collages. Kruger, much like male artists before her like Manet and Andy arhol, reconfigures conventional ways of depicting the female body to cross the borderlines of what is considered art, appropriate sexuality, and appropriate ways of representing women. The work gets its title from the literal words that are cut out and transposed…… [Read More]. These are movie companies and their entire image revolved around the number of participants of their films.
People who wanted to see the movies being made had to go to the studios in order to see them. They made movies in a profitable manner for the sake of the studios, but placed the entire industry under their control and dominated over it. MTV has succeeded in catering to the whims of new generations of youths in the 25 years since it launched, and it is continuing to grow.
In addition, with its new parent, MTV Networks is readying for a more visible role with plans to leverage its influential brands in new ways.
Not everyone, however, is enthusiastic about the impact of MTV on today's culture. Gender Billy Wilder's Film. Unlike the unequivocally feminine Sugar Cane, neither Joe nor Jerry plays the role of the cad or the cowboy. In fact, Joe shows genuine emotion and caring for Sugar as his feelings for her deepen.
Joe and Jerry, like Sugar Cane, are musicians. All three are therefore portrayed as social equals regardless of gender. Gender and sexuality are treated differently in Some Like it Hot.
The key scenes in Some Like it Hot with allusions to homosexuality are the ones in which Osgood pursues Daphne. Osgood challenges conventional gender roles and stereotypes. He has been married "six or seven times" and only his mama has kept track. His inability to remain in a stable heterosexual relationship may be viewed as a typically male, cavalier attitude toward marriage.
Race Class Gender the Intersection. The different "isms" such as sexism, heterosexism, and racism are creating very real schisms -- in our minds, and between people. The chasms of communication that are created by hatred and misunderstanding are socially constructed. They can be socially deconstructed too.
Such rifts occur between groups of people and between whole cultures. In some pockets of the United States, social conservatism threatens to erase the social progress made since the Civil ights movements of the s. There are still people in the United States that believe that homosexuality is unnatural, even immoral.
The idea that heterosexual marriage is in some way superior to homosexual marriage is rooted in outmoded religious doctrine and not in positive social progress.
Within these "isms" are the chasms of misunderstanding that create social strife and inequality. Income disparity, for example, is closely linked with race as well as gender.

She has been praised for using her music and videos to raise this question and to confound the usual exploitative answers provided by 'the media'… Gaga's gonzo wigs, her outrageous costumes, and her fondness for dousing herself in what looks like blood, are supposed to complicate what are otherwise conventionally sexualized performances" but this complication does not necessarily lead to a feminist liberation Bauer Still, Gaga has been embraced by a generation of women, some who shun and some who embrace the feminist label.
But real young women, who, as has been well documented, are pressured to make themselves into boy toys at younger and younger ages, feel torn. They tell themselves a Gaga-esque story about what they're doing. American Economy s Consumer Culture. Thus, a couple -- Tom and Betsy ath -- are stuck in the middle trying to find real meaning in it. Living in suburban Connecticut, their three children are addicted to TV and show no real interest in the life around them.
Tom is the epitome of the discontented businessman, who is forced to work to pay for the new middle class suburban life. Despite his hard work, he finds it hard to pay for his life, a staunch contrast to the free living seen in the Seven-Year Itch. Betty's acceptance of Tom's affairs, which shows the passive and supportive role of the wife in the s no matter what the husband is to do -- he is her life support, for she is a stay at home wife.

She eats in a very refined manner and attempts other fine characteristics such as speaking French, although she fares poorly at this. Ironically, not all her language is pure, as she swears cosntantly by "St. Loy," a saint renowned for not swearing. Unlike the general conception of the Nun, she is very concerned with outward appearances and did not much care for human beings.
Indeed, she cared much more for her three dogs than the human beings around her. Another irony is that she has a coral trinket to fight worldly temptations, which is clearly failing badly. A second character is the Friar, Hubert. While he is jolly, merry, and festive, his actions are nevertheless evil and cunning.

In , with the help of his long-time friend Barry Schwartz, Klein took the leap and fulfilled his entrepreneurial dream "Calvin Klein". At first, the company designed women's coats, but it soon branched out into other areas. Klein applied the simple, clean lines of his coats to women's sportswear, producing practical yet fashionable clothes. His designs gave women seeking empowerment "tailored suiting with an authoritative image without the loss of a feminine quality" "Calvin Richard Klein".
Klein produced popular scents like Obsession, Eternity, and Escape, and he transformed men's underwear from utilitarian undergarments into something clean, simple, and sexy "Calvin Klein".

Mary Pickford United Artist's Founder.
The films Pickford brought to life as a producer later in her career were often nothing like those she starred in as an actress: For example, "in , during the independent production boom at the end of orld ar II, she organized Comet Pictures to make medium-budget films with Ralph Cohn, the son of Columbia Pictures cofounder Jack Cohn. At Comet she produced probably her finest later film, the noir hit Sleep, My Love " as well as the broad, comedic-style films My Little Chickadee with.
