Art and international relations during the Late Bronze Age formed a symbiosis as expanded travel and written communications fostered unprecedented cultural exchange across the Mediterranean. Diplomacy in these new political and imperial relationships was often maintained through the exchange of lavish art objects and luxury goods. The items bestowed during this time shared a repertoire of imagery that modern scholars call the first International Style in the history of art. Marian Feldman's Diplomacy by Design examines the profound connection between art produced during this period and its social context, revealing inanimate objects as catalysts—or even participants—in human dynamics. Feldman's fascinating study shows the ways in which the exchange of these works of art actively mediated and strengthened political relations, intercultural interactions, and economic negotiations. Previous studies of this international style have focused almost exclusively on stylistic attribution at the expense of social contextualization. Written by a specialist in ancient Near Eastern art and archaeology who has excavated and traveled extensively in this area of the world, Diplomacy by Design provides a much broader consideration of the symbolic power of material culture and its centrality in the construction of human relations.

In Design and Diplomacy, Mary Jean Thompson tells her story of achieving personal fulfillment and professional success by turning setbacks into steppingstones. She does this by combining multidimensional thinking with the heart and soul, grit and grace, to follow through from thinking to doing.She writes of a powerful work ethic and a wellspring of core values shaped by family, heritage, and place. These include multitasking to achieve higher levels of perfection, and maintaining her dignity and honesty no matter what others do. She draws on these and other principles time and time again in her journey from Oregon's fertile Willamette Valley to building an unparalleled design enterprise to serving as a European diplomat.Growing up in a loving and supportive family, strengthened by a fine liberal arts education, and mobilizing her keen intellect and entrepreneurial spirit, she overcomes personal heartache and professional breaches of trust to launch four innovative national companies while raising four remarkable children.Over a span of four decades, she pioneers a radical rethinking about the purpose and power of healthcare environments. Her inspiring, people-centered designs include healthcare, historic restoration, corporate, educational, and residential projects across the country, including 35 hospitals. Winning more healthcare design awards in this period than any other interiors firm in the United States, she builds a portfolio of projects totaling more than $1 billion.Her proven ability to bring together people of exceptional abilities leads to a career as Honorary Consul of the Principality of Liechtenstein. Now representing a sovereign nation with powerful diplomatic skills, she works with the country's highest officials to create major public diplomacy advances for Liechtenstein in the United States.Sharing her story in this richly illustrated book, Mary Jean Thompson--mother, grandmother, trailblazer, classical pianist, accomplished skier, world traveler, civic and cultural leader, and woman of impeccable taste and style--reveals how family, creativity, and hard work shape a life of purpose and impact, the life of a Renaissance woman.###
