Book DescriptionSome people once boldly predicted that photography would displace painting altogether Others asked whether a photograph could be art in the first place As it turned out, these two forms of expression have had a stimulating effect on oneanother during their long years of coexistence The Image Regained illustrates, with works обююе by outstanding contemporary artists and photographers, the intensity and consequences of this exchange over the past twenty years Work by Amy Adler, Bernd & Hilla Becher, Rineke Dijkstra, Gilbert & George, Andreas Gursky, Amedeo Martegani, Elizabeth Peyton, Sigmar Polke, Gerhard Richter, Cindy Sherman, Thomas Struth, Jeff Wall, and others reveals that, more frequently than not, the encounter between painting and photography has rocked our very understanding of the image Painting, under the influence of photography, is now finding its way back from the abstract to the figurative, whereas photography, in the 80s, claimed for itself the traditional painterly themes of portraiture and landscape The breaking with conventional modes of perception has by now become programmatic Paintings, for instance, now explore the properties of photography--the effects of light and shadow as well as blurred outlines for simulating different foci--and are hung next to photographs that suggest a painterly mode of creation As varied as the artistic directions documented here may be, one commitment remains common: the endeavour to look long and close at our world, and to make the viewer stop and think Includes Marco Franciolli, Elio Grazioli, Amy Adler, Sigmar Polke, Jeff Wall, Thomas Struth, Gerhard Richter, Bernd & Hilla Becher, Elizabeth Peyton, Amedeo Martegani, Andreas Gursky, Rineke Dijkstra, Gilbert & George, Cindy Sherman, amongst others Essay by Elio Grazioli Introduction by Marco Franciolli Paperback, 9 84 x 11 in , 176 pages, 100 color illustrations.  2003 г 176 стр ISBN 3775712682.
