Walter
54:26
Different times of day
Diana Feinberg
56:45
what are different criteria for “best” woodblock print/
Pamela Garry
56:57
is the pigment like watercolor media?
Emily Kuo
57:10
How many prints would be made? Was there any kind of limit?
Mary Larson
59:06
How common is it for the content to change between the sketch and the print? (Since the watercolor doesn't have the comforter, the people, etc.) Did the carver change it, or did the original artist?
Helen Fairman
01:00:13
It’s interesting that Hasui is referred to as the
Helen Fairman
01:00:20
designer, not artist
Jeremy Kagan
01:00:33
If you look at art as a continuity of one artist effecting another then it is all one
Rick Ehrenberg
01:00:35
Gives a sense of the time and effort put into a series like Hiroshige's 53 Stations of the Tokaido
Elizabeth Griffith
01:00:37
Why do you refer to him as the Designer and not the Artist?

Regretfully, I have to leave the Zoom now.
Jeremy Kagan
01:01:38
If you think of Ansel Adams and the importance of the print you have two artists one more under the influence of another
lkaufm18
01:02:38
Wasn’t it printed in Avedon’s studio with his supervision and overview?
Jeremy Kagan
01:02:55
Looking at lithos you have the same “marriage”
Louis Kaplan
01:03:40
Yes For Adams - it is transposing the distinction between the musical score and the performance
Marjorie Lindblom
01:04:30
The magazine is moodier
Kathryn Woodruff
01:04:31
deep shadows and contrast
Jeremy Kagan
01:04:33
second is moody and darker and background different
Robert Santiago
01:04:34
the solo portraits are more honest
Emily Kuo
01:04:34
The manipulation of the photographs
Sandra Maliga
01:04:35
contrast
Elizabeth Griffith
01:04:36
Shading is more subtle in the photographs
Philip Lovejoy
01:04:36
tonal qualities
Ingrid Sorensen
01:04:40
The separate images are more realistic
lkaufm18
01:04:41
Magazine images are flat and have too much contrast
Karissa S.
01:04:43
Cooler tones in the magazine
Pamela Garry
01:04:48
smoother background in individual portraits
Melinda
01:04:51
differences between one part and the wholes
Matthew Park '90
01:05:06
Group vs individual
Abigail Eugene OR
01:05:29
Alone and together - alone and in place.
Jeremy Kagan
01:05:37
again the whites have disappeared, Adams re blacks and whites need to be in the print distinctly
Jane Conger
01:05:59
bright and dull
Ingrid Sorensen
01:06:13
Schneider for the win!
Henry Marcy '60
01:06:19
Definitely the left-hand version
Jonathan Frost
01:06:19
Right looks like Zoom!
Molly Wittenberg
01:06:20
The top one
David Silver
01:06:39
I like your insights but prefer the group, simply because it makes them look like the group that they are.
Sandra Maliga
01:06:47
Shoulder line changed.
Melinda
01:07:01
why do you use the term "audience," rather than 'viewer'?
lkaufm18
01:07:25
Avedon’s aesthetic usually used the white border
Pamela Garry
01:07:29
like an editor with author
Jerry Rabow
01:07:37
JOHN looks like different images.

01:08:26
Avedon, because of lighting
Sarah Marshall

Avedon
Judith Traum
01:08:28
Avedo
Marjorie Lindblom
01:08:28
Avedon, b/c it can't exist without his work
Mia (Millicent) Shargel
01:08:29
Avedon had the vision
Nancy Northrop
01:08:33
Avedon -- he created the composition and your discussion noted his input into the final product.
Melinda
01:08:44
what do YOU think?
Ingrid Sorensen
01:08:50
Avedon but I respect Schneider’s contribution much more than I did before your talk

Allison Colbert

Love the installations at the window!
Jeremy Kagan
01:14:56
Interesting that some of the greatest thirteenth century stain glass like from Chartres have not artists credited. Sometimes the sponsors who paid for the glass but not the artists.
Jeremy Kagan
01:16:16
As a filmmaker myself we of course call this art form as a collaborative one
Sandra Maliga
01:17:19
If we value the “idea” then there are very likely many other collaborators.
Nancy Northrop
01:17:36
