Краткое описание

Glittering Images: A Journey Through Art from Egypt to Star Wars.

Provocative, audacious, and acute in her perceptions and her opinions, cultural critic Camille Paglia here takes us on a whirlwind tour of the major themes of Western art through 29 works—paintings, sculptures, architecture, performance pieces, and digital art—that have defined and transformed our visual world. From the ancient Egyptian tomb of Queen Nefertari, we spin past the stone idols of the Cyclades, a French rococo interior, and Jackson Pollock's Green Silver. In a stunning conclusion, Paglia declares that the avant-garde tradition is dead and that digital motion picture pioneer George Lucas is the world's greatest living artist. "Paglia, an ardent and often controversial defender of the arts and creative freedom, argued for the value of poetry in Break, Blow, Burn.... This interdisciplinary firebrand and die-hard populist showcases 29 outstanding works, each representative of a certain style or period, beginning with a tomb painting of Queen Nefertari and working up to Andy Warhol's portraits of Marilyn Monroe. Paglia's succinct, lively, and illuminating essays combine aesthetics and social considerations ad she recalibrates our perception of, say, Renaissance artist Donatello's 'harsh and imposing' depiction of Mary Magdalene, or Jamaican performance artist Renee Cox's Chillin' with Liberty.... Paglia's bold and rigorous, handsomely illustrated and welcoming art iconography will accomplish her mission to provoke, enlighten, and inspire."—Booklist (starred review)
