CSULB Art Historian emerita Dr. Lora Sigler publishes book on Medieval Art and Silent Films

Posted on August 29, 2018 by School of Art

Medieval Art and Silent FIlmCSULB Art Historian emerita Dr. Lora Sigler will be publishing a book entitled Medieval Art and the Look of Silent Film. This book will focus on how the medieval arts influenced both the Costumes as well as the Set Design during the Silent Film era. “In the wake of World War I, designers overthrew the artifice of prewar style and manners and drew upon what seemed a nobler, purer age to create an ambiance that reflected higher ideals.” Dr. Sigler looks not only at film stills and archival materials, but also through the fashion shots and trends of the day.

Congratulations Dr. Sigler!
