Research Guides

Posted by courtneycox2009 on March 2, 2010

The library has now put together a simple and very useful research guide for all majors here at Ringling. Research Guides are here to help everyone with researching topics about their major. There are even short videos, pictures, books and magazines that relates to the specific major and can  be useful for enhancing one’s work.

How to use Research Guides:

  • Click on the individual Research Guide you’d like to see
  • Begin researching by clicking on the different tabs
  • Each tab will have different  information about the intended major which are all highly informative.

Though Research Guides are still in the process of being perfected, students can at least familiarize themselves with the format of this new strategy.

New Book: Lempicka

Posted by Carter on September 15, 2008




ND237.L545 L45 2006

Tamara de Lempicka is probably not an artist you’ll read about in art history class. In fact, she’s probably not like any artist you’ve heard of before. A self-proclaimed movie star by day and femme fatale by night, Lempicka charmed the hearts of many an audience with both her art deco painting style and her fashionably good looks.

Named after the artist, the book Lempicka tells the story of the woman whose bizarre life was immortalized through her unique art style. Influenced by both cubism and Italian renaissance masters, Lempicka demonstrated a love for painting at an early age and swung into the spotlight in the thirties when art deco style reached the height of its popularity. Despite her second husband’s death, she continued to produce art until she died in the late seventies. Almost immediately after her death her work was revived in the public’s eyes and has since become a symbol for the twentieth century.

Lempicka is not only a concise, well written biography of Tamara de Lempicka’s life, it is also a catalogue of the first exhibition devoted to her in France. The book contains an illustrated chronology of the artist’s work as well as multiple photographs and scenes from her life. It features 159 glossy high-resolution images of her paintings from 1919 to 1976 that, according to Lempicka, reveal more about herself than the model portrayed.
