The Painting of Modern Life

£34.99

Product description

Andy Warhol's silk screens, Gerhard Richter's blurred images, Vija Celmins' hyperrealism: some of the most influential developments in the history of contemporary art hinge on the use of photographs as source material. Beginning in the early 60s, with seminal works by the aforementioned artists, The Painting of Modern Life charts the 45-year evolution of the translation of photographic images to paint--revealing an extraordinary breadth of stylistic and thematic diversity. This volume features 22 painters whose sources range from snapshots to commercial media, among them Richard Artschwager, Robert Bechtle, Celmins, Peter Doig, Marlene Dumas, Thomas Eggerer, Judith Eisler, Franz Gertsch, Richard Hamilton, Eberhard Havekost, David Hockney, Johannes Kahrs, Johanna Kandl, Martin Kippenberger, Liu Xiaodong, Malcolm Morley, Elizabeth Peyton, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Richter, Wilhelm Sasnal, Luc Tuymans and Warhol. Essays by curator Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, writer and critic Martin Herbert, Hayward Director Ralph Rugoff and poet and critic, Barry Schwabsky lend insight to issues of translation, context and content.

Book in very good condition with clean pages throughout and securely bound. Some minor wrinkling to the top front cover and wear to top of rear cover.Slight wear to the top corners of the rear cover, otherwise very good overall. Published in 1977, first edition.
