Accompanying an exhibition at the Wallraf-Richartz Museum
celebrating the long history of the human image in art, this
beautiful book places significant photographs of the twentieth and
twenty-first century in dialogue with some of the great masters of
European art from the late Middle Ages to the nineteenth century.
The paintings and photographs reflect happiness and suffering, hope
and despair--and the juxtapositions shed light on abiding elements
of the human condition. Bringing the work of contemporary
photo-artists like Nan Goldin and Jurgen Klauke face to face with
that of old masters like Titian and Francois Boucher also serves to
reveal both the continued influence of painting on photography, and
conspicuous areas of difference.
In addition to seventy full-color images, this bilingual German and
English edition includes an interview with art collector Lutz
Teutloff, an essay by renowned cultural critic Bazon Brock, and
biographical information on the artists. The glamour and misery of
mankind are on full display in this stunning catalog.
