Why do we find ourselves returning to certain pictures time and again? What is it we are looking for? How does our understanding of an image change over time? In his latest book T. J. Clark addresses these questions—and many more—in ways that steer art writing into new territory. In early 2000 two extraordinary paintings by Poussin hung in the Getty Museum in a single room, Landscape with a Man Killed by a Snake (National Gallery, London) and the Getty's own Landscape with a Calm. Clark found himself returning to the gallery to look at these paintings morning after morning, and almost involuntarily he began to record his shifting responses in a notebook. The result is a riveting analysis of the two landscapes and their different views of life and death, but more, a chronicle of an investigation into the very nature of visual complexity. Clark’s meditations—sometimes directly personal, sometimes speaking to the wider politics of our present image-world—track the experience of viewing art through all its real-life twists and turns.

Why do we keep returning to certain pictures? What is it we are looking for? How does our understanding of an image change over time? This investigates the nature of visual complexity, the capacity of certain images to sustain repeated attention, and how pictures respond and resist their viewers' wishes.

Can you Handle the Sight of your Death?Bob Schneider is a young man at his early 40 who never believed life had meaning withoutalcohol and smokes. His temperament madehim lose his family, with his wife in unconscious from months Bob was left to his miserable life.An argument at work had put him on the roadwe would undoubtedly beg to back from.He had abused and caused God with total disdain, claiming nothing existed but himself alone;fierce to the bones he almost pounces onDaniel, a workmate.He had never realized he had started a journey that will change his life forever. Bob went home that faithful evening to his regular Pub, drunkto his full; though totally conscious as his steps into his rickety old dark house on a rainy Saturday night.The scariest sights of his life faced him as he saw even the most nerve-cracking scenery as he begs to get back to his real life, first the gory structure of his dead grandparentscovered in the pool of blood; then he could find himself fall right through his apartment's marbled flood, down to ghost streets where he saw the grossest creatures he couldn't fathom how it all happened.As thunders rumbled, he could feel life gradually go out of him as he sees his skin torn by worms before his very eyes. Everything looks more scary. It was one night he was never going to forget

One of the most impressive facts about death today is how much and in how many different ways various aspects of death and dying are undergoing dramatic changes. Edwin Shneidman has compiled this volume to give the reader a broad-ranging view of current trends in thanatology. The result is a remarkable compendium of pertinent insights upon which to build an understanding of death in our time - death as it relates to our comprehension of ourselves and our fellow beings. Edwin S. Shneidman, Ph. D., was Professor of Thanatology (the study of death and its surrounding circumstances, as in forensic medicine) and Director of the Laboratory for the Study of Life-Threatening Behavior at the University of California at Los Angeles.

"Picasso and Truth" offers a breathtaking and original new look at the most significant artist of the modern era. From Pablo Picasso's early "The Blue Room" to the later "Guernica", eminent art historian T. J. Clark offers a striking reassessment of the artist's paintings from the 1920s and 1930s. Why was the space of a room so basic to Picasso's worldview? And what happened to his art when he began to feel that room-space become too confined--too little exposed to the catastrophes of the twentieth century? Clark explores the role of space and the interior, and the battle between intimacy and monstrosity, in Picasso's art. Based on the A. W. Mellon Lectures in the Fine Arts delivered at the National Gallery of Art, this lavishly illustrated volume remedies the biographical and idolatrous tendencies of most studies on Picasso, reasserting the structure and substance of the artist's work. With compelling insight, Clark focuses on three central works--the large-scale "Guitar and Mandolin on a Table" (1924), "The Three Dancers" (1925), and "The Painter and His Model" (1927)--and explores Picasso's answer to Nietzsche's belief that the age-old commitment to truth was imploding in modern European culture. Masterful in its historical contextualization, "Picasso and Truth" rescues Picasso from the celebrity culture that trivializes his accomplishments and returns us to the tragic vision of his art--humane and appalling, naive and difficult, in mourning for a lost nineteenth century, yet utterly exposed to the hell of Europe between the wars.
