Summary: ''The four essays in this volume constitute Derrida's most explicit and sustained reflection on the art work as pictorial artifact, a reflection partly by way of philosophical aesthetics (Kant, Heidegger), partly by way of a commentary on art works and art scholarship (Van Gogh, Adami, Titus-Carmel). The illustrations are excellent, and the translators, who clearly see their work as both a rendering and a transformation, add yet another dimension to this richly layered composition. ...show moreIndispensable to collections emphasizing art criticism and aesthetics.''--Alexander Gelley, Library Journal ...show lessEdition/Copyright: 87
