Quotations: The Second History of Art

Quotations: The Second History of Art is at first familiar. Upon further investigation, it becomes humorous, deceiving, and finally, as with most worthwhile contemporary art experiences, disturbing. In Quotations, one discovers “new” tapestries, altarpieces, paintings, sculptures, drawings, and photographs seemingly chronologically displayed; reconstructions and reconfigurations of masterpieces from almost every age of Western civilization.
