Art and Technique in the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries - Paperback

2003, ISBN: 189095103X

ID: 599150940

[EAN: 9781890951030], Fine, [PU: Zone Books, New York], Art|History|General, 331 pp., illus., bib. notes; 24 cm. First published, 1956. Translated from the French. Tight, clean copy. "Although the work of Pierre Francastel has long carried the label 'sociology of art,' it bears little resemblance to anything conventionally sociological. For too long, Francastel has been unavailable to English-language readers and hence known only through erroneous and second-hand characterizations. The translation of Art and Technology should open the way for a rediscovery and reconsideration of this brilliant, often misunderstood thinker. Unlike the followers of the dominant schools of Anglo-American and German art history, Francastel was never obsessed with establishing a quasi-scientific methodology as the basis for his studies. But as art history itself is being reconfigured amid the technological culture of the twenty-first century, his nuanced meditations from the 1950s on the intricate intersection of technology and art gain heightened value. The concrete objects Francastel examines are for the most part from the architecture and design of the late nineteenth to mid-twentieth century. Through them, he engages his central problem: the abrupt historical collision between traditional symbol activities of human society and the appearance in the nineteenth century of unprecedented technological and industrial capabilities and forms. Francastel's vision of the indeterminate, shifting relation between the aesthetic and the technological will be of crucial importance to anyone interested in the history of art, architecture, and design." - Publisher. Contents: The Myths of Mechanization; Technology and Architecture in the Nineteenth Century; Versatility of the Object; Mechanization and Figurative Style in the Nineteenth Century; The Stages of Architecture after 1900; The Problem of Abstract Art; The Success and Value of Contemporary Art; Eternal Art and the Work of Art.

Although the work of Pierre Francastel (1900-1970) has long carried the label "sociology of art," it bears little resemblance to anything conventionally sociological. For too long Francastel has been unavailable to English-language readers, and hence known only through erroneous and secondhand characterizations. This translation of "Art and Technology" should open the way for a rediscovery and reconsideration of this brilliant, often misunderstood thinker. Unlike adherents of the dominant schools of Anglo-American and German art history, Francastel was not obsessed with establishing a quasi-scientific methodology as the basis for his studies. But as art history itself is being reshaped by the culture of technology, his nuanced meditations from the 1950s on the intricate intersection of technology and art gain heightened value. The concrete objects that Francastel examines are for the most part from the architecture and design of the late nineteenth to mid-twentieth century. Through them he engages his central problem: the abrupt historical collision between traditional symbol-making activities of human society and the appearance in the nineteenth century of unprecedented technological and industrial capabilities and forms. Francastel's vision of the indeterminate, shifting relation between the aesthetic and the technological will be of crucial interest to anyone interested in the history of art, architecture, and design.
