Modernism on Stage: The Ballets Russes and the Parisian Avant-Garde by Juliet Bellow

Modernism on Stage:

The Ballets Russes and the Parisian Avant-Garde

Juliet Bellow

"Elegantly written and sumptuously illustrated, this wonderful book offers a fascinating journey through the rich intersections between music, painting, the decorative arts, and performance on the Ballets Russes stage. What is at stake here is no less than a rethinking of the concept of modernism from an intermedial perspective. Modernism on Stage is a tour de force not to be missed by anyone interested in the Ballets Russes and the Parisian avant-garde." - Marion Schmid, French Studies 67, no. 4 (October 2013): 573-574.

Gender, Culture, and Politics

Helen Langa and Paula Wisotzki, eds.

"The wonder of this book is the variety of artists considered and the rich range of scholarly voices illuminating them. Together the essays give us two generations of modern American women who persevered in their art making, often without the support of cultural institutions. The stories of their hard work, determination, and unquenchable drive to speak through their images greatly enriches the historical record and gives the reader the pleasures of discovery and new knowledge." - Wanda M. Corn, Stanford University, USA

Radical Art

Helen Langa

"Radical Art is a landmark study, both in the history of printmaking and in the history of American art of the thirties. There is no better explicator of the graphic arts of this era and their cultural context than Helen Langa. Her thoroughly researched and compellingly written volume is a major scholarly contribution." — Betsy Fahlman, author of John Ferguson Weir: The Labor of Art
