The most comprehensive monograph on figurative painter Jenny Saville, whose large-scale nudes continue to challenge accepted ideals of beauty. Thirteen years after her first Rizzoli monograph, British artist Jenny Saville, an original member of the Young British Artists, releases her most definitive book, including never-before-published paintings from her most recent exhibition at Gagosian in New York. This much-anticipated volume unites new work with many of Saville's paintings and drawings to date, accompanied by essays that explore Saville's continuing fascination with the human body within a broad art-historical context. The book also features Saville in an extensive conversation with acclaimed American photographer Sally Mann. An illustrated chronology of Saville's career completes this elegant volume. This beautifully produced monograph is an important addition to the library on one of the world's most influential and enduring living painters.
