9780847843756: The Figure: Painting, Drawing, and Sculpture

THE FIGURE features outstanding examples of contemporary figurative art by leading and established artists -- Jenny Saville, Eric Fischl, Will Cotton, Jerome Witkin, Hilary Harkness, Mark Greenwold, Eric White, Margaret Bowland and others -- alongside emerging talents. Topical essays by distinguished critics, painters and sculptors -- Donald Kuspit, Irving Sandler, Vincent Desiderio, Alexi Worth, David Ebony, Julie Heffernan, Judy Fox, Kurt Kauper, Laurie Hogin, Robert Taplin, and others -- along with "artist methodologies" by Trenton Doyle Hancock, Richard Phillips,  Rona Pondick,  Steven Assael, F. Scott Hess, Alex Kanevsky, Alyssa Monks, Steve Mumford, Scott Noel, Natalie Frank, Anne Harris, Andrew Raftery, Nicola Verlato, Steve Mumford, Edgar Jerins and others, provide diverse historical contexts for the volume's nearly 170 artworks. The evolution of techniques -- from classical cast drawing, perspective, and the camera obscura to the use of photography, Photoshop, and 3D-modeling -- and changing cultural conditions from antiquity to cyberspace are examined, and the use of old and new techniques in contemporary figurative art described. Underscoring the art of the figure's enduring appeal and the pedagogy of the New York Academy of Art, THE FIGURE is essential to anyone interested in both tradition and progress in figure-based art, from students to professionals and collectors.

Review:

The Figure, has the look of a high-end coffee table decoration, but don’t judge this book just by its Martha Mayer Erlebacher cover. Inside, you will find it crammed not only with striking images but also with essays by critics, artists, and other thinkers that air out thematically related historical, philosophical, theoretical, and technical issues. The Figure is an ambitious and overdue tome that fills a void...” –Huffington Post

The Figure is a wide-ranging survey of contemporary art depicting the human body in all its splendor.” –Wall Street Journal

The Figure: Painting Drawing and Sculpture, has the look of a high-end coffee table decoration, but don’t judge this book just by its Martha Mayer Erlebacher cover. Inside, you will find it crammed not only with striking images but also with essays by critics, artists, and other thinkers that air out thematically related historical, philosophical, theoretical, and technical issues. The Figure is an ambitious and overdue tome that fills a void: if you haven’t noticed, contemporary representation is coming on strong. The figure is the greatest subject of all — it will live as long as we do — and this stimulating book reminds us... If there ever was an art book that needed to become a major exhibition — or a maybe a salon — The Figure is it.” –Hyperallergic
