What does it mean to say that a painting has been ?invaded? by language? Art, Word and Image answers this question by exploring how visual images and writing can work in dialogue in an artwork. Whether the picture frame is encroached upon by doodlings, as with Adolf Wolfli?s seemingly irrational scribbles, or a plea to spirituality is blazoned across a vast canvas, as in the moving images of Colin McCahon, we can be sure that words here have a special meaning, one beyond everyday communication.   Art, Word and Image, one of the first books to examine the use of language in art, is constructed around three major chronological essays by renowned scholars John Dixon Hunt, David Lomas, and Michael Corris. Their essays chart the use and significance of words in art?from Classical Greece through the Middle Ages and Renaissance to modern digital media.  



John Dixon Hunt is emeritus professor of the history and theory of landscape at the University of Pennsylvania. He is editor of the journal Word and Image and the author of Nature Over Again: The Garden Art of Ian Hamilton FinlayMichael Corris is professor of fine art at Sheffield Hallam University. He is the author of Ad Reinhardt. David Lomas is reader in art history at the University of Manchester. He is the author of The Haunted Self: Surrealism, Psychoanalysis and Subjectivity.
