After providing examples of other techniques and the schools that abandoned them, Wolfe concluded with Conceptual Art: "…there, at last, it was! No more realism, no more representation objects, no more lines, colors, forms, and contours, no more pigments, no more brushstrokes. Krauss in Partisan Review. Many reviewers dismissed Wolfe as someone simply too ignorant of art to write about it.
Other critics responded with such similar vitriol and hostility that Wolfe said their response demonstrated that the art community only talked to each other. Wolfe was particularly amused, however, by a series of criticisms that resorted to "X-rated insults. The reviewer viewed Wolfe's lack of a suggestion for what should replace modern art as similar in its obtuseness to statements Linda Lovelace made about Deep Throat being a "kind of goof.

In defense of critics Rosenberg, Greenberg, and Steinberg, Rosalind Krauss noted that each man wrote about art "in ways that are entirely diverse. Wolfe's other non-fiction, Davis wrote, was deeply reported, but here "Wolfe did not get away from the typewriter and out into the thick of his subject. Outside the art community, some reviewers noted that however unpopular Wolfe's book may have been in art circles, many of his observations were essentially correct, particularly about the de-objectification of art and the rise of art theory.

General Ragen, Brian Abel Tom Wolfe; A Critical Companion. She uses her free class This book is amazing and a perfect guide to display to children what it is like for an ELL student in a new American school environment. She uses her free class time to paint pictures of her story.
She has an encounter with a bully named Patrick, who calls her dummy often. Although she does not understand what he is saying at first, she knows by his look and tone of what he is saying when he is saying it that it is something demeaning about her and it hurts her feelings but instead of crying she paints. At the end of the Painted Words section the teacher says that it is time for her to tell her story and he hangs up all of her paintings and she divulges her story through her paintings and her English vocabulary that she has come to learn.
In the second part titled Spoken Memories, this is where she tells her story to her classmates. It is her story of what she endured in her life prior to coming to the new country. She tells of her village and the closeness within the village among the villagers. Her story is filled with difficulties that most children in her American classroom would never experience or have knowledge of but the fact that they can hear what her life was like, allows for a deeper respect and understanding for Marianthe.

It is a great learning opportunity for everyone and aside from educating them, hopefully it imprints into their part of the brain that is responsible for empathy and compassion for others. Feb 18, Margaret rated it really liked it Shelves: children-s-books , picture-books. This is two books in one. Short summary: A young girl comes to the US from another country. She doesn't speak English yet, and her teacher encourages her to communicate with other students through her art.
In the second book we learn more about her life before she came here. What I liked: Full color illustrations with many images of children. Nice multi-ethnic representation of her classmates. Her country of origin is not mentioned, so it really can apply to many children without being too specifi This is two books in one. Her country of origin is not mentioned, so it really can apply to many children without being too specific. Great visuals for kids that are not verbal for a number of reasons.
Marianthe is very visual and we see how she sees and changes her perception as she learns more her world. What I didn't like: The teacher shortens her name to "Mari" without getting her permission or her parents' permission He asks "May we call you Mari? I think it's important to know how the child wants to be called, and even if her name is long or hard to say, it's up to US to learn how to say it and show respect.
My name is Margaret and I cringe if people try to shorten it. Warnings: Marianthe mentions the death of a brother as a baby before she was born. One boy is mean to her in class great talking point. Would I read this to children: Yes, I would. I think it's a great story about immigration, as well as feeling like an outsider. I would discuss the name thing with kids and ask their opinions--has anyone shortened your name? How did you feel? How do you feel when someone really tries to learn your name and how to say it properly?
Apr 01, Susan rated it it was amazing Shelves: , storybook. This book - these books really as Part 1 backs onto Part 2 - made me cry! In the library! But I was able to get to my tissues fairly quickly, but still did earn a strange look from the librarian. The story, I think would touch most children, both those who have moved to a new country and culture, as well as those who hopefully welcome the ones who are arriving in the new place.
Aliki perfectly captures the feelings of Marianthe e.
I appreciated how su This book - these books really as Part 1 backs onto Part 2 - made me cry! I appreciated how supportive Marianthe's mother was even though she was likely feeling pretty scared too. I appreciated too that most of the children tried to welcome Marianthe to her new classroom and home, but that Aliki did not shy away from the fact that some of the children will try to bully the new student. I appreciated how the teacher and other adults involved handled the different situations.
I like that Aliki did explore the feelings of Marianthe, her family, the village, the students, etc. There need to be more children's storybooks that make it OK to have all types of feelings and to have feelings be accepted, and also experienced, by the adult characters.

Finally, the illustrations for the book were fabulous, perfectly capturing the plot, the characters, and the emotions of the story. Oct 18, Maria Ambrosini rated it it was amazing. Painted words was such a beautiful story of a young girl who is brought to a new country and doesn't know the language. Therefore, when it was time to paint, the young girl began to paint and her classmates were so eager to learn what she was painting.
They soon realized that she would communicate what she couldn't say through her paintings. One of her classmates was bullying her so she painted a sad painting of herself which the whole class understood. I really enjoyed this book because I had a Painted words was such a beautiful story of a young girl who is brought to a new country and doesn't know the language.
I really enjoyed this book because I had a very thought message and the students were very respecting of their new classmate at the end.
Painted Words / Spoken Memories
There's a lot to learn about the differences that we all bring into a classroom. The illustrations really help us understand the story better. This book is age appropriate for k-3 and is very easy to understand. Oct 02, Benjamin Wagner rated it it was amazing Shelves: immigration-text-set. Marianthe's Story by Aliki is a double-book. I don't know how else to describe it but I'm sure there's a term out there for this type of book somewhere; when you finish one side, you rotate the book and start again from the other side.
This particular text is a two-part story, following a young immigrant named Marianthe who recently arrived to America and is starting school. Her country of origin is intentionally left out, but her name, Marianthe, is of Greek origin, as is the author. This book Marianthe's Story by Aliki is a double-book. This book is fiction, but I suspect it is based on the experiences of the author, which might place it closer to an "autobiographical fiction" area.
In the first "book," Mari is sent to school and doesn't understand what the teacher, nor any of her classmates are saying. Instead, she expresses herself with painting. In the second, she has developed her English vocabulary and tells the story of what it was like in her home country, and why they left. This is an excellent book describing some struggles of immigration, cultural norms and assimilation in a new culture, as well as a sprinkling of women's empowerment.
An interesting aspect of this piece is there is a good deal of content that isn't directly written about, but instead expressed in pictures. This might make the book more appropriate for a wider range of learners. The literary content by itself is appropriate for second or third graders. The artwork is gorgeous; it appears to be done with pencils. It supports the text and even enhances it beyond what's written.
Of course, the author was an immigrant from Greece herself Mari's implied country of origin. I find it very interesting that her country of origin isn't directly stated. Instead, it focuses on Marianthe, a complex character with believable emotions. By splitting her story into two parts, children can more easily compartmentalize the different facets of leaving a country.
The first, she's arrived to America and feels lost, but slowly gains friends and English language skills with the help of a friendly teacher and her family. The second, she's nostalgic in a bittersweet way about her previous life in what I must assume is Greece. I think this book is a timeless, perfect example of the struggles of leaving one's home, and discovering life anew in a foreign land. Not only does it realistically portray these characteristics, it also encourages some wholesome values, such as creativity through art, friendship, and the importance of knowledge and family.
Mari and her family are very cute and portrayed as ordinary folks, not rooted in any stereotypes whatsoever besides some mild ones associated with peripheral and semi-peripheral countries. The plot is both realistic but age-appropriate without too many heavy-handed, mature themes. It's told from the perspective of a child, essentially. The text is easy to understand through read-alouds, guided-reading or individual reading activities. Although I know little about this topic from personal experience, I don't see any glaring issues in the narrative nor the illustration.
Sep 29, Courtney Nations rated it really liked it Shelves: readbooks She is nervous about this new world she is about to step in, and is concerned about not knowing the English language. The first day, Marianthe doesn't understand much. She hears babbles when people talk and chicken feet when people write. Marianthe then discovers that she can communicate one way though, with her paintings. She paints about herself, to try and tell a story of who she is and where she is from. With time Marianthe begins to understand her classmates and her teacher. Babbles become words and names, and chicken feet become letters that make sounds, and form words.
When Marianthe is ready, the teacher allows her to share with the class who she is and where shes from using her paintings and the new language she has adopted as her own. Critique: This was a very well written book, with many lessons to learn about accepting others that are different and making them feel welcomed. The only critique I would have would be that the author elaborate when the student is being mean to Marianthe.
The author jumps from saying that Patrick calls Marianthe a "dummy," but then talks about the nice students, and then goes back to having dialogue about some students being mean and ignorant. This seemed very choppy while reading, and might have flowed better if the author talked about the mean student as a whole, and then spoke of the nice children. Teaching Prompt: This would be an excellent book to have a writing prompt about.
The author talks about feelings a lot throughout this text, and this would go great with teaching about schema and connecting to the text.
