Drapery: Classicism and Barbarism in Visual Culture
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungIn this fascinating and accessible book, Gen Doy investigates the hitherto neglected meanings of drapery and the draped body in visual culture. The baroque and the classical are her subjects, as are Freud's Gradiva, Clerambault's writings and photographs of draped figures, and the fetishistic play between veiling and repeating. Doy explores the meanings of drapery in recent art, from Christo's wrapped Reichstag to the impact of the modern women's art movement on fine art practice.
PortraitGen Doy is Professor of the History and Theory of Visual Culture at de Montfort University.
