Art and Laughter (Art and Series) - download pdf or read online

By Sheri Klein

this can be the 1st ebook to take heavily - even though now not too heavily - the unusually ignored function of humour in artwork.

'Art and Laughter' appears again to comedian masters corresponding to Hogarth and Daumier and to Dada, Surrealism and pa paintings, asking what makes us snicker and why. It explores using comedy in paintings from satire and irony to pun, parody and black and bawdy humour. Encouraging laughter within the hallowed house of the gallery, Sheri Klein praises the modern artist as ‘clown’ - usually ignored in favour of the function of artist as ‘serious’ commentator - and takes us on a journey of the comedian paintings of crimson Grooms, Cary Leibowitz, ‘The furry Who’, Richard Prince, Bruce Nauman, Jeff Koons, William Wegman, Vik Muniz and lots of extra. She seeks out these infrequent smiles in paintings - from the Mona Lisa onwards - and highlights too the pleasures of the lovable, the camp and the downright kitsch.
