Example text

Also, portraiture in America at the time, despite parallel conservative trends, could be highly experimental, playful, or theatrical. 3 Demuth’s series of nonfigural “poster portraits” probed psychological, sexual, or spiritual aspects of his subjects through symbols, letters, and numbers. This nonmimetic symbolic imaging introduces an innovative rethinking of the traditions of portraiture that was not uncommon at the time. Furthermore, his use of the half mask as a central motif provides a potent analogy to new explorations of identity.

American composer Virgil Thomson began writing portraits in musical form in 1928. 21 E. E. Cummings, influenced by Stein, wrote portrait poems, playing with discontinuity and juxtaposition as well as spacial arrangements of words and punctuation on the page. In 1917, he penned this poem upon hearing of the death of Buffalo Bill: Buffalo Bill’s defunct who used to ride a watersmooth-silver stallion and break onetwothreefourfive pigeonsjustlikethat Jesus he was a handsome man and what i want to know is how do you like your blueeyed boy Mister Death22 The first American artist to offer a truly radical break with the visual portrait tradition was Mexican-born Marius de Zayas, a member of Alfred Stieglitz’s avant-garde circle.

He shared this passion with his friend, the white critic and novelist Carl van Vechten, who was himself an integrating force between black and white Manhattan. 40 Entitled A Prediction, the drawing implies that the critic’s white pallor would soon darken with his enthusiasm for black culture. This is not blackface; it is more like reverse “passing,” a notion, however jokingly conveyed, that seems to reconstitute racial imaging in an era still saturated with Uncle Toms, Mammies, Darktown comics, and minstrelsy.
