Painting as Model

Voorkant
MIT Press, 1993 - 327 pagina's

Informed by both structuralism and poststructuralism, these essays by art critic andhistorian 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 priorirejection of all theory, Bois argues that theory is best employed in response to the specificdemands of a critical problem. The essays lucidly demonstrate the uses of various theoreticalapproaches in conjunction with close reading of both paintings and texts.Yve-Alain Bois was afounder of the French journal Macula and a Fellow at the Centre National de la RechercheScientifique, Paris. He is currently Professor of the History of Art at HarvardUniversity.
