  2. Buried with Tiffany: A Conservation Plan for the Tiffany Glass Mosaics of the Harris C. Fahnestock Mausoleum at the Woodlawn Cemetery in the Bronx, New York

    Kress, Alexandra Elizabeth
    This thesis examines the interior glass mosaics of the Harris C. Fahnestock mausoleum within The Woodlawn Cemetery in the Bronx, New York. A conservation plan was developed to preserve the only complete mosaic interior by Louis Comfort Tiffany at The Woodlawn Cemetery. This particular design is one of Tiffany’s earliest ecclesiastical commissions and contains a rare example of a domed mosaic interior. A comprehensive evaluation of exterior envelope defined the interior mosaic deterioration. Material analysis was performed on sections of the mosaic composition. Recommendations are made for a conservation plan to prevent further deterioration of this significant mortuary decorative art.

  3. Max Bill: Art of the intellect and architecture of functional beauty

    Pereira, Tania Calovi
    This Dissertation studies the theory and works of the Swiss artist and architect Max Bill, and more specifically the relationship between his art and architecture. As a student in the Bauhaus from 1927 to 1929 Max Bill studied under the directorship of Walter Gropius and his efforts to unify the arts with a rational orientation and input from sociologists and gestalt psychologists. Though this synthesis of the arts was never realized in the Bauhaus, it has remained a sought after ideal as it had been long before Gropius' time. This Dissertation argues that Max Bill's artwork and architecture represent one...

  4. Hector Guimard, political movements, and the Paris Metro: Natural sympathies, governing harmony, and social change

    Clendenin, Malcolm
    Hector Guimard (1867-1944) looked to the forms of nature in hopes of reforming society. His architecture tells a political story, but this has been virtually absent from all previous discussions of his work. Guimard was passionately active in Paris as a social reformer, laboring alongside legislative leaders and progressive journalists. The same nexus of beliefs shaped his ideals of both government and design. In this respect he followed his English inspirations, William Morris and John Ruskin, more than his French contemporaries such as Emile Gallé and Auguste Rodin. Guimard's political vision carried his work beyond the psychological interiority of the...

  5. Architecture in the manner of Giovanni Battista Piranesi: Ornamental excess and the apotropaic function of grotesque representations

    Trubiano, Franca
    Giovanni Battista Piranesi's architectural representations have made significant contributions to the historiography of early modern architecture. His achievements in this regard continue to enthrall many a contemporary scholar solicitous in identifying the larger polemical and theoretical context within which he imaginatively depicted architectural figures. The following dissertation maintains Piranesi's inventive manner was largely characterized by his return to the prodigious number of ruins which demonstrated the presence in antiquity of forms of figuration incongruous, licentious and capricious. So vast had been their numbers, Piranesi adopted their eccentric characteristics in the creation of his own genres of representation. And revealing the...

  6. Jewels of the Natural History Museum: Gendered aesthetics in South Kensington, c. 1850-1900

    Syperek, PKC
    Several collections of brilliant objects were put on display following the opening of the British Museum (Natural History) in South Kensington in 1881. These objects resemble jewels both in their exquisite lustre and in their hybrid status between nature and culture, science and art. This thesis asks how these jewel-like hybrids – including shiny preserved beetles, iridescent taxidermised hummingbirds, translucent glass jellyfish as well as crystals and minerals themselves – functioned outside of normative gender expectations of Victorian museums and scientific culture. Such displays’ dazzling spectacles refract the linear expectations of earlier natural history taxonomies and confound the narrative of...

  7. Idas y venidas. Los viajes de arquitectura en España entre 1920 y 1960

    Tomás Gabarrón, Lorenzo
    Esta tesis se propone indagar en las vias por las que la arquitectura española cambió en el periodo comprendido entre 1920 y 1960 y el papel que los viajes tuvieron en dicho cambio. La investigación busca demostrar que, junto a otros factores como la llegada de revistas y libros y las conferencias de arquitectos de la talla de Le Corbusier, Gropius, Mendelsohn, Neutra o Aalto, los viajes tuvieron un papel clave en el proceso de apertura de miras y que provocó que, bien a traves de lo publicado en las revistas por los “arquitectos viajeros” o por el reflejo que...
