Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This extensively illustrated book examines Greenaway's vision from a number of perspectives and traces a shift of sensibility in his work. David Pascoe examines not only Greenaway's films, but also his paintings, exhibitions and installations.

"[Pascoe] tirelessly explicates the numerology and mytho-mania that are the film-maker's organising principles"—The Guardian

"A supremely intelligent, utterly tuned-in, definitive exploration of the ultimate British auteur's back catalogue, helpfully illustrated at every opportunity. . . illuminating"—Empire

Synopsis:

Peter Greenaway is one of the most distinctive — and provocative — personalities to emerge in European cinema in the last two decades. A painter by training, he has made his reputation as an unconventional film-maker possessed of a strong visual style and an obsessive attention to detail. This extensively illustrated book looks at the full range of Greenaway's artistic and cinematic productions, from The Draughtsman's Contract to The Baby of Macon and The Pillow Book, and portrays him as a British artist immersed in his country's history and culture, and as a unique and controversial voice in world cinema and art

Synopsis:

A painter by training, Peter Greenaway has made his reputation as a controversial film-maker with a strong visual style. This book focuses on his work as an artist, curator and writer, as well as a film-maker, and is illustrated with stills from his films.
