Description

Accompanying a major exhibition, this stunning survey and important monograph highlights more than two decades' worth of Lisa Yuskavage's brilliant and controversial paintings. Internationally acclaimed American painter Lisa Yuskavage is known for her seductive yet unsettling work, in which cartoony, vulgar, angelic young nymphs are cast within fantastical landscapes or theatrical interiors. In this dazzling monograph she presents the confrontational imagery, luscious paint, and technical virtuosity that are her signature, blurring the boundaries between high art's classic female nudes and their naughty, soft-porn counterparts. This comprehensive new volume offers a rich overview of the artist's work with interpretive essays by leading art historians and an interview with the artist. This will be the definitive book on this important artist.
