Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Unrepentant, unapologetic, unbridled and under-appreciated, genre art from the first half of the 20th century reflected subconscious urges of a economically deprived and sexually depressed generation. This popular art set the stage for the advertised expression of today's more liberated consumer culture. Shameless Art explores the influential work of imaginative illustrators who helped create the visual language for everything from today's comic books, magazine and television advertising, as well as imaginative movies like Avatar and sensual films like Y Tu Mama Tambien. Featuring stunning art by such genre masters as Tom Lovell, Virgil Finlay, Hannes Bok, Margaret Brundage, and Enoch Bolles, this beautifully produced full color collection mirrors mid-20th century masculine fantasies.
