by Wardle, Marian Eastwood
University of Maryland, 1999. Softcover. VG (No illus. included in this photocopy, hence the missing pages.). Dissertation. Spiral-bound. Photocopied from microfilm by UMI. 1-357, 502-533 pp., no illus. Dissertation. "Looks closely at portrayals of genteel sewing figures by the American artists Edmund Tarbell (1862-1938) and J. Alden Weir (1852-1919) as representative of the motif in the last two decades of the nineteenth cetnury and the first two of the twentieth. An analysis of the tension created between the quiet containment of the figures and their portrayal as actively producing, prompts a reading of the depictions as both resisting and promoting societal change." (abtract) Author Wardle served for more than a decade as the American art curator for the Museum of Art at Brigham Young University.
