Description - Painting as Model by Yve-Alain Bois

Informed by both structuralism and post-structuralism, these essays by Yve-Alain Bois seek to redefine the status of theory in modernist critical discourse. Warning against the uncritical adoption of theoretical fashions and equally against the a priori rejection of all theory, Bois argues that theory is best employed in response to the specific demands of a critical problem. The essays demonstrate the uses of various theoretical approaches in conjunction with close reading of both paintings and texts.
