About this title

Synopsis:

The Newspaper in Art presents 400 years of art and media history. Extensively researched, thoroughly annotated and fully indexed, the present volume documents the important role newspapers have played in the development of important art movements.
Artists use newspapers as incidental props and minor visual modifiers, but the newspaper attains its highest level of significance in artworks in which it is a key symbol or the sole subject. The Newspaper in Art provides insights into the ways readers and artists interact with news, with journalists and with the newspaper itself. It also illustrates the ingenuity of artists in finding new raw material from which to create art.

From the Inside Flap:

As the most comprehensive study of its type, The Newspaper in Art presents 400 years of art and media history. Extensively researched, thoroughly annotated and fully indexed, the present volume documents the important role newspapers have played in the development of important art movements. The volume includes 210 reproductions, along with a checklist of hundreds of additional works by more than 200 artists. A convenient Museum Guide directs the reader to the places where major works with newspapers can be seen.

Newspapers have been the dominant medium for reporting and commenting on current events for nearly four centuries. During that period, newspapers have helped form and topple governments, battled crime, questioned policies, launched and ended wars. They have also provided symbolism and substance for thousands of art works. The newspaper achieved artistic significance not only because of the extent and variety of its use, but also because of the stature of the artists who have employed it. Throughout their history, newspapers have inspired hundreds of artists, including great masters like Hogarth, Ingres, Monet, Van Gogh, Renoir, Picasso, Braque and Johns. Newspapers and news clippings were vital elements in the first Cubist collages. Dadaists used them in the first photomontages. Pop artists borrowed newspaper images and techniques extensively.

Artists use newspapers as incidental props and minor visual modifiers, but the newspaper attains its highest level of significance in artworks in which it is a key symbol or the sole subject. The Newspaper in Art provides insights into the ways readers and artists interact with news, with journalists and with the newspaper itself. It also illustrates the ingenuity of artists in finding new raw material from which to create art.
