Ways Around Modernism by Stephen Bann
Book DescriptionStephen Bann examines the arguments for the centrality of French modernist painting. He begins by focusing particularly on the notion of the modernist break, as it has been interpreted with regard to painters like Manet and Ingres. He argues that 'curiosity', with its origins in the seventeenth-century world-view can be a valid concept for understanding some aspects of contemporary art that contest the modern, suggesting ways of sidetracking the modern by adopting a lengthier historical view.

The revealing letters of probably the most significant Scottish public intellectual and artist of the late 20th century.
Distinguished Images, Hardback (April 2013)
Rather than simply tracing the rise of Modernism in the 19th century, this book reconstitutes the period's cultural milieu through a series of case studies written with an eye to overarching forces at play. It surveys the field as a whole and discusses the relationships between the various media in the context of an overall "visual economy".
