"I was in high spirits all through my unwise teens, considerably puffed up, after my drawings began to sell, with that pride of independence which was a new thing to daughters of that period."—The Reminiscences of Mary Hallock Foote Mary Hallock made what seems like an audacious move for a nineteenth-century young woman. She became an artist. She was not alone. Forced to become self-supporting by financial panics and civil war, thousands of young women moved to New York City between 1850 and 1880 to pursue careers as professional artists. Many of them trained with masters at the Cooper Union School of Design for Women, where they were imbued with the Unity of Art ideal, an aesthetic ideology that made no distinction between fine and applied arts or male and female abilities. These women became painters, designers, illustrators, engravers, colorists, and art teachers. They were encouraged by some of the era's best-known figures, among them Tribune editor Horace Greeley and mechanic/philanthropist Peter Cooper, who blamed the poverty and dependence of both women and workers on the separation of mental and manual labor in industrial society. The most acclaimed artists among them owed their success to New York's conspicuously egalitarian art institutions and the rise of the illustrated press. Yet within a generation their names, accomplishments, and the aesthetic ideal that guided them virtually disappeared from the history of American art. Art Work: Women Artists and Democracy in Mid-Nineteenth-Century New York recaptures the unfamiliar cultural landscape in which spirited young women, daring social reformers, and radical artisans succeeded in reuniting art and industry. In this interdisciplinary study, April F. Masten situates the aspirations and experience of these forgotten women artists, and the value of art work itself, at the heart of the capitalist transformation of American society.
This book is a history of the development of commercial illustration and the graphic arts industry in Canada from the late eighteenth century to the 1940s. It suggests that the foundations of Canadian art and a Canadian popular culture rest not only within the European traditions of fine art but also with the work of those artists who practised in the commercial environment of the early graphic arts houses. It is also a history of a type of "work" that was new during this period. The mechanized reproduction of art works in the nineteenth century meant that artists found themselves within an industrial atmosphere similar to that of other workers. This history traces the beginning of that process in England, follows its transference to Canada, and demonstrates how illustrators, engravers, photo-engravers, and lithographers became part of an increasingly commercially oriented industry. It was an industry of major importance in the fields of printing and new forms of advertising, but it was also an industry that led to a change in status for the members of its work force who considered themselves to be artists. The study is not concerned with aesthetic values of works of art or with the impact that commercially produced art work has had on consumer culture. Rather, it seeks to understand artists as workers, and work itself, within the changing commercial and industrial milieu of nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century Canada.

"Electrifying the World of Art explores the history of the contemporary art and technology movement-and the people involved-in the pursuit of new art, commercial innovation, and creative collaborations"--
"In Merchants in the City of Art, Anne Schiller addresses classic anthropological questions about culture change and places them in a contemporary context, bringing together issues of work, heritage, immigration, and tourism. San Lorenzo, a neighborhood located in the historic centre of the celebrated city of Florence, and home to a market that has existed since before the Renaissance, is in transition. Globalization pressures--specifically international tourism and migration--are forcing changes in the way vendors work, which in turn raises larger questions about identity, authenticity, and heritage. This lively and engaging ethnography, written and designed with students in mind, uses the experiences and perspectives of a set of long-time market vendors to explore how cultural identities are formed, and how they change, and are negotiated during periods of profound social and economic change."--
By exposing the separation of art and labour, Art Work provides a valuable, historical perspective on the present-day struggle for artists' rights.

These poems will surprise you. Their deep concerns are handled in ways that the reader can't help but be reminded, if not stunned into revelations, concerning the human predicament. Terry Allen's Art Work opens with the poem Isadora, about one of the most famous avant-garde dancers of the 20th Century. We see in her life the rewards and dangers of opening up to the world, how we are liberated and yet die in the act of liberation, leaving the reader with the echo of her words, no matter the risk, "Don't let them tame you." Allen then takes us on a wild ride through history but never abandoning the historical moment to the past, but showing how it touches the present moment, as when he pays tribute to the florescence of ancient Greek playwriting, especially the comedies of 2,500 years ago. Still, then the poem begins its closing with these lines: It's like Bertolt Brecht/said...one shouldn't fight/dictators one should/ridicule them, and how tragically that sentiment reflects the present day. Reader, these poems are all in the early pages of Art Work. You have so much more to look forward to. From a 1910 Vatican decree against Modernism to the speak-easy years between the two World Wars, to a delightful dialogue between father and son on the way to school as they challenge each other to name famous movie dogs, and expect to find Latin, Cicero, Harry Potter, and Trivial Pursuit banging up against each other in a single poem, all telling us that history never stops revealing itself to us. This book is a masterful achievement. Walter Bargen, first Poet Laureate of Missouri and author of Pole Dancing in the Night Club of God The poems in Art Work are both accessible and engaging. Terry Allen's involvement in theater and his love of jazz shines through on many pages. This is a collection to read, savor, and read again.
