Since the mid-1960s, Ohio-born artist Elaine Sturtevant has been concerned with one the of the most important themes in Western art--originality. Now living and working in Paris, she reproduces existing paintings by artists such as Marcel Duchamp, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, and Frank Stella--to name just a few. Often indistinguishable from the originals, these works call attention to the crucial issues of origin and difference. Designed and produced in close collaboration with the artist, this opulently illustrated, two-volume publication is both a catalogue of her extensive oeuvre and an artist's book. Supplemented by probing essays and interviews, it offers an unprecedented overview of the unique and unparalleled work of this American artist.

Sturtevant (as she is simply known) was born in Lakewood, Ohio in 1926. She has devoted the past 40 years to appropriating works by her contemporaries, many of which have since become icons of modern art. Like no other artist before her, Sturtevant poses the question of the true value of art in the art business, and puts the terms "original" and "originality" up for debate. Her work, which includes painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, film, and video, still provokes its viewers today--both intellectually and emotionally. Sturtevant has exhibited in group and solo shows internationally, and her work is included in the collections of the ARC, Paris; MOCA, Los Angeles; the Vienna Secession; and the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam. She lives and works in Paris, France.
