About this Item

Neuware - Two of the most important modernist artists, Marcel Proust and Andy Warhol, also developed aesthetic theories. Proust presents imaginary artists - a composer, a painter, and a novelist. Warhol made paintings and sculptures; created art history writing, fiction, and films; and sponsored a rock group. Warhol most likely never read Proust, but because their ways of thinking contrast dramatically, much can be learned about both men's art by comparing: the imaginary painting described by Proust to Warhol's Marilyn Diptych the ways that Proust and Warhol understand art-making; how Proust and Warhol define art; and the ways that Elstir's studio differs from Warhol's factory. Also discussed is the relationship of their homosexuality to their art. Proust/Warhol: Analytical Philosophy of Art employs three key intellectual tools: the aesthetic theory of Arthur Danto, the account of Proust by Joshua Landy, and the analysis of the art of living by Alexander Nehamas. Proust/Warhol concludes with a discussion of an issue of particular importance for Warhol, the relationship between art and fashion. 128 pp. Englisch. Bookseller Inventory # 9781433104336

About this title

Synopsis:

Book by Carrier David

Críticas:

-David Carrier takes us through the meanders of each artist's monumental work and has us wonder at the uncanny parallels that both lives and oeuvres offer. Through his inexhaustible erudition, Carrier mines the oeuvre of both of these artists in order to draw what one might call the most defining features of what 'modern' is - at either end of the twentieth century, on the two continents that shaped modernity (...). Ultimately, the proof of the success of Carrier's brilliant book lies in this quote by one of these two authors: 'I tried to find beauty where I had never thought it might be found, the most ordinary things, the profound life of still life.' Who said it? It could be either of them. But you will find out the answer when you read Carrier's book.- (Joachim Pissarro, Bershad Professor of Art History and Director of the Hunter College Art Galleries Art Department, Hunter College of CUNY)"
