More than seventy-five of today’s leading international artists write about an individual artist whose work has influenced, moved, or inspired them

Behind the closed door of the contemporary artist’s studio is a hidden world of images―those artworks from the distant or near past that have animated, troubled, consoled, or inspired the artists of today. This book reveals that hidden world, presenting an intimate guide to the imaginations of today’s leading practitioners through the works they love best. Artworks ranging from the fifteenth to the mid-twentieth centuries are featured, often supplemented by reproductions of work by the selecting artists. Intimate and evocative, the stories speak of the challenges, provocations, revelations, and delights that can be found when one artist looks closely at the work of another. Some artist-contributors provide unusual perspectives on familiar figures from art history―including Thomas Demand on Paolo Uccello, Miroslaw Balka on Michelangelo, Vik Muniz on Peter Paul Rubens, Juliao Sarmento on Eugene Delacroix, Joan Fontcuberta on Louis Daguerre, and Eija- Liisa Ahtila on Pablo Picasso. Others select lesser-known artists, from Jean-Marc Bustamante on Pieter Saenredam, Francesco Clemente on Henry Fuseli, and Tomma Abts on It―o Jakuch―u to Erwin Wurm on Poul Gernes, Do Ho Suh on Kim Keong-Hui, and John Bock on Armand Schulthess. 152 illustrations, 135 in color

About the Author:

Simon Grant is a writer and art historian, and has been the editor of Tate Etc. magazine since 2004. His writings on art include catalogue essays on Paul Nash, Keith Tyson and Tacita Dean, and articles for the Guardian, Times Literary Supplement, the Independent on Sunday, Parkett and The Burlington Magazine.

Review:

“Modernism often puts the emphasis on breaking with art from the past, but these contemporary artists acknowledge, and delight in, the artistic affinities they share with older artworks. . . . Fascinating.”
- Art New England

“[The] book reframes famous art historical canon in terms of the attitudes, desires, and culture of today.”

Book Description Thames Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 2012. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In My View is a collection of reflections by 78 contemporary artists in which each artist reveals the influence and inspiration he or she has found in a particular artwork or artist. Among the artists are John Baldessari, Daniel Buren, Chuck Close, Michael Craig-Martin, Tacita Dean, Marlene Dumas, Antony Gormley, Susan Hiller, Thomas Hirschhorn, Candida Hofer, Vik Muniz, Jorge Pardo, Raymond Pettibon, Ed Ruscha, Bill Viola and Rachel Whiteread. The works chosen range from the fifteenth to the mid-twentieth century, some of them iconic, others lesser known. The accompanying essays are often very personal, recalling childhood memories and life-changing moments, and capturing the joy and excitement that come from encounters with great art. The stories show the profound connections that exist between artists past and present and offer an alternative look at art history from the 15th century to the 1960s, through the eyes of contemporary artists themselves. Simon Grants introduction identifies themes that emerge and contextualizes the history and practice of artists looking back at the work of others. Seller Inventory # AA29780500238967
