Abstract:

"This book re-examines what has been arguably the most influential development in the history of contemporary painting - the use and translation of photographic imagery. Beginning with seminal photo-inspired works from the early 1960s by painters such as Gerhard Richter, Vija Celmins, Andy Warhol and Malcolm Morley, this book charts the international evolution of this trend over the past 45 years. Richly illustrated with over 100 paintings by 22 artists whose work draws upon varied photographic sources - from amateur snapshots to news and magazine pictures - this book explores how the significance and content of an image changes dramatically when it is translated into a different medium."--BOOK JACKET.
