Shared Intelligence: American Painting and the Photograph Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Shared Intelligence, companion catalog to the exhibition of the same name, explores the stimulating and productive relationship between painting and photography in American art. The essays in this beautifully illustrated book describe how this dynamic developed, beginning in the nineteenth century and continuing to the twenty-first—from Thomas Eakins to the Stieglitz circle and Georgia OKeeffe to contemporary art. The book shows that while the initial proponents of photography were struggling to secure its place among the fine arts, photographys inherent expressiveness was leading painters to use the camera in their work. And as cameras and photographs became part of American culture, photographic seeing—how a photograph freezes, flattens, enlarges, and crops its subject—began to affect artists visual representations. This gorgeous volume, which also includes interviews with artists Robert Bechtle, Barkley Hendricks, and Sherrie Levine, documents the complex ways in which painting and photography have influenced one another—not to undermine eachs originality, but to celebrate the deep, continuing connections between them.

Synopsis:

"Shared Intelligence looks at what painters have borrowed from photography over the past century. What emerges is the painters growing respect for a sister medium as well as the primacy of the photograph in the modern world. To paint photographically has become a significant hallmark in contemporary art."—Wanda M. Corn, author of Women Building History: Public Art at the 1893 Columbian Exposition
