Pictures of Paintings by Richard Misrach

Book Description

What do paintings signify in an age of photographs? How do photographs modify the visual language of paintings? Showcasing photographs of select museum masterpieces, Misrach focused on details of paintings in an attempt to reexamine the details as a means of understanding a lexicon pf cultural values, among them race, gender, religion and power. By collapsing the barriers between the traditional practice of documentation and the recent strategies of appropriation art, these photos raise important questions regarding representation itself. 75 full-colour photos.
