Most widely held works by Leo Steinberg
The sexuality of Christ in Renaissance art and in modern oblivion by Leo Steinberg ( Book )
34 editions published between 1983 and 2006 in English and held by 1,762 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The second edition of The Sexuality of Christ in Renaissance Art and in Modern Oblivion - doubled in size by the addition of a "Retrospect"--Expands the now classic original text in three directions. It brings in a host of confirming images; deepens the theological argument; and answers skeptical or scandalized critics who decried the book at its first publication. In its polemical parts, the book wrestles large issues, such as the validity of interpretations that come without supporting texts, or the modern pleas that the maleness of Christ be tempered into androgyny. Along the way, the topics engaged range from Christ's human nature to Dr. Strangelove, from St. Augustine's dismal assessment of babyhood to the aesthetics of the U.S. Post Office."--Jacket

Leonardo's incessant Last Supper by Leo Steinberg ( Book )
10 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 967 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A picture universally recognized, endlessly scrutinized and described, incessantly copied, adapted, lampooned: does Leonardo's near-ruined Last Supper still offer anything new to be seen or to be said: This book is a resounding Yes to both questions. With direct perception - and with attention paid to the work of earlier scholars and to the criticism embodied in the production of copyists over the past five hundred years - Steinberg demonstrates that Leonardo's mural has been consistently over-simplified. This most thought-out picture in Western art, painted in the 1490s on the north wall of the refectory of Santa Maria delle Grazie, Milan, is a marvel of compressed meanings. Its subject is not one arrested moment, but successiveness and duration. It is not only Christ's announcement of the forthcoming betrayal, but in equal measure the institution of the eucharist. More than the spur of the moment animates the disciples, and more than perspective determines their housing. Though Leonardo's geometry obeys all the rules, it responds as well to Christ's action at center, as if in emanation from the prime mover. The picture is simultaneously narrative and sacramental. As its protagonist is two-natured, as the twofold event of this night is both human submission and divine dispensation - so the entire picture is shown to have been conceived in duplexity: a sublime pun." "Meanwhile, the unending disagreement as to what exactly is represented, what the depicted actions express, how and where this assembly is seated - all these still raging disputes are traced to a single mistaken assumption: that Leonardo intended throughout to be unambiguous and clear, and that any one meaning necessarily rules out every other." "As Steinberg reveals an abundance of significant interrelations previously overlooked, Leonardo's masterpiece regains the freshness of its initial conception and the power to fascinate."--BOOK JACKET

Encounters with Rauschenberg : (a lavishly illustrated lecture) by Leo Steinberg ( Book )
5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Leo Steinberg is the rare art historian who has known the pressures implicit in reviewing the work of living artists. In his engrossing lecture, filled with exciting insights and personal memories, he surveys the career of Robert Rauschenberg, one of the great American postwar artists. Beginning with his own experience as a moonlighting critic in the turbulent art world of New York in the 1950s and 1960s, he reveals much about himself and more about the insolent originality of the young Rauschenberg." "Steinberg offers in-depth discussions of such major challenges as the Erased de Kooning Drawing, Bed, and Monogram. Where his interpretations differ from those of other critics, he shows how, and why. And he reflects candidly on his own changes of mind over the years." "Steinberg warns against the modish interpretations that now load Rauschenberg's work with murderous symbolism or same-sex iconography. He argues that meaning in this artist's work is almost unspeakable, and the novel relationship established between the work and the viewer more subtly intentioned."--BOOK JACKET
