Looking at the overlooked : four essays on still life painting by Norman Bryson( Book )
25 editions published between 1990 and 2013 in English and German and held by 810 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Historically and culturally, the societies that produced still life painting could hardly be more diverse. What is it, then, that allows us to place such different types of image in a single category? Norman Bryson argues that the family resemblances between the different types of still life stem from their common portrayal of a level of material culture that retains its fundamental outlines through long spans of time and across the boundaries and divisions of national culture: the culture of domestic routine and the rituals of hospitality. How this 'low plane reality' is historically viewed and inflected by the 'higher' levels and discourses of the surrounding culture is the fundamental subject of this book

Cindy Sherman, 1975-1993 by Rosalind E Krauss( Book )
11 editions published in 1993 in English and German and held by 673 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this first presentation of the artist's complete work, leading contemporary art historian Rosalind Krauss reviews Cindy Sherman's remarkable series of photographic works - in which the artist has notoriously assumed various roles, from B-movie starlet to Old Master model - and the enormous influence these works have had on feminist thinking and on current dialogues about the strategies of contemporary art in general. Almost perversely, Krauss argues, Sherman's unsettling attempts to dissect the formation and perception of images have turned her artworks - and herself - into icons for feminists' and others' agendas. Krauss explores in depth the various approaches to Sherman's work taken by philosophers and art historians and asks if they have not often lost sight of the imagery itself - or, more specifically, the way the images are constructed." "In a further essay, Norman Bryson, internationally known for his pioneering theories on the semiotics of looking, explores Sherman's most recent, horror-show images of mannequins (known as the Sex Pictures) and identifies their place in her continued out-of-body investigations. Along with a bibliography and chronology, more than 200 illustrations (140 in color), including numerous unpublished works, represent Sherman's complete career to date."--Jacket

John Currin by John Currin( Book )
7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One of the leading figurative painters of his generation, Currin's influences range from Italian and Northern Renaissance paintings to popular illustrations from the mid-20th century. Whether portraits of older women, buxom girls, nudes with elongated bodies, or group scenes of domestic life, his works are characterized by baroque gestures, loose brushstrokes, unorthodox palettes, and detailed backgrounds that startle the viewer into a reconsideration of the tradition of painting. His "old master" techniques and individual style have earned him accolades from critics and collectors worldwide
Robert Therrien by Lynn Zelevansky( Book )
3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this volume, which accompanies the exhibition Robert Therrien and examines the artist's work of the past decade, curator Lynn Zelevansky explores the transformation of forms that has been the hallmark of Therrien's artistic process and situates his work within contemporary art practice. Essayist Thomas Frick discusses the work vis-a-vis the formalist tradition in art and examines the paradoxical nature of its abstract and figurative aspects. In the volume's third and final essay, art historian Norman Bryson investigates the visceral effect of Therrien's sculpture on the viewer, relating its effects to the corporeal invasions and restitutions found in animated cartoons."--Jacket
