Description de "Glittering Images: A Journey Through Art from Egypt to Star Wars"

In her groundbreaking "Sexual Personae," Camille Paglia turned her incisive eye on beauty and decadence in literature, art, and popular culture. Now, America's premier intellectual provocateur returns to the subject that brought her fame, tackling the great themes of Western art in an enthralling tour through more than two dozen seminal images, some famous and others obscure or unknown. With energy, erudition, and wit, Paglia leads us chronologically through the paintings, sculptures, architectural styles, performance pieces, and digital art that have defined and transformed our visual world. She combines close analysis with background that situates each artist and image within its historical context--from an Egyptian tomb to Titian's "Venus With a Mirror;" from an elegant French Rococo interior to Jackson Pollock's abstract "Green Silver;" from Renee Cox's daring performance piece "Chillin' with Liberty" to Eleanor Antin's amusing conceptual art project "100 Boots." In a stunning ending, Paglia declares that the avant-garde tradition is dead and that director George Lucas, creator of "Star Wars," is the world's greatest living artist. Brilliantly concise and lucidly designed for general readers and students, this continually surprising book deciphers the messages of the cultural code over the past 3000 years, and once again confirms Camille Paglia's inimitable talent for overturning the received wisdom of her predecessors. Beautifully written, passionately argued, and filled with Paglia's trademark audacity, "Glittering Images" is destined to change the way we think about our visual environment in this high-tech age.
