Photography and Sculpture - The Art Object in Reproduction Summary

Photography and Sculpture - The Art Object in Reproduction by Sarah Hamill

Ever since the mid-nineteenth century, when the new medium of photography was pressed into service to illustrate sculpture, photographs of sculptural objects have directed viewers as to just when, in the course of ambling around a sculpture, was the single perfect moment to stop and look. What is the photograph's place in writing the history of sculpture? How has it changed according to culture, generation, critical conviction, and changes in media? Photography and Sculpture: The Art Object in Reproduction studies aspects of these questions from the perspectives of sixteen leading art historians. Chapters on such varied topics as picturing Conceptual art, manipulating sacred images in India to be nonphotographs, and framing Roman art with an iPad illustrate the latent visual and narrative powers and ever-expanding potential of these images of sculpture.

Photography and Sculpture - The Art Object in Reproduction Reviews
