schema:reviewBody""Today, repetitive imagery dominates all forms of visual experience, from the realm of advertising to the spaces of contemporary art. In this innovative project, the authors show that the phenomenon of repetition - often considered merely incidental to the age of mechanical reproduction - was a pervasive attribute of early modern painting long before its embrace by twentieth-century high modernism." "In works by David, Ingres, Delaroche, Gerome, Corot, Millet, Monet, Cezanne, Degas, and Matisse, the reader can compare closely related versions of some of the most familiar imagery of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The authors demonstrate that by making multiples of closely related subject matter in their paintings and in other media, these artists challenged an aesthetic based on the notion of an inimitable, unique masterpiece." "Through beautiful illustrations and essays by leading scholars, this book shows how repetition in early modern painting took on a complex, multivalent significance and that the traditional medium of painting remained undiminished despite the nineteenth-century invention of photography and film."--Jacket."
