Van Gogh, Dalí, and Beyond: The World Reimagined
traces how modern artists have reinvented the genres of landscape, still life, and portraiture from 1889 to today. A selection of paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs, prints, and media works from the unparalleled collection of The Museum of Modern Art reflects dynamic changes in artistic attitudes toward people, places, and things. From Vincent van Gogh's twisted olive trees to Richard Long's contemplative land art; from Paul Cézanne's still life of humble objects to Jeff Koons's shiny commodities; from Frida Kahlo's confident self-portrait to Gerhard Richter's blurred likeness, the iconic works included here show how modern artists have deployed radical new forms to revitalize time honored subjects. Fully illustrated in color, the publication includes essays on each of the three genres, as well as a compendium of quotations by artists and others. 168 pages; 164 illustrations.To download a sample PDF of Van Gogh, Dalí, and Beyond: The World Reimagined click here.
