Throughout his remarkably prolific career of more than 40 years, Lucas Samaras has built a diverse and highly textured body of work, largely with his own image. Self-depiction is arguably the driving force of his life's work. This book, the catalogue for a major exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art, is the first to focus on his self-portraiture. Marla Prather surveys Samaras's career from the late 1950s to the present, tracing his self-portraits in various mediums, including drawings, photography, boxes, mirrored environments, and film. There will also be an extensive, illustrated biography of the artist, making the catalogue an essential source for scholars. Including some 300 illustrations, Unrepentant Ego demonstrates Samaras's critical place in art history, which he has earned by creating provocative, multifaceted work outside the dominant trends of his time.

Über diesen Titel


An exceptional copy; fine in an equally fine dw, now mylar-sleeved. Particularly and surprisingly well-preserved; tight, bright, clean and especially sharp-cornered. Literally as new.; 335 pages; Physical desc.: 335 p. : chiefly ill. (some col.) ; 30 cm. Subject: Samaras, Lucas (1936-) --Self-portraits --Abstract expressionism --Influence --Exhibitions --Individual artists. Summary: Unrepentant Ego: The Self-Portraits of Lucas Samaras, which accompanies the Whitney Museum of American Art exhibition of the same title, follows the development of Samaras's self-portrait leitmotif, from the late 1950s to the present. With an extended chronology by Whitney curator Marla Prather that traces the influences and artistic trajectory of Samaras's life; an essay by Donald Kuspit that provides an in-depth analysis of Samaras's self-portraiture; a full-color plate section; and an extensive bibliography and index, this volume is an essential guide to the life and work of an exceptionally challenging and complex artist.

Reseña del editor:

One of the most innovative artists of his generation, Lucas Samaras (b. 1936) studied art with such figures and artists as Meyer Schapiro, George Segal, and Allan Kaprow. Throughout his remarkably prolific forty-year career, Samaras has produced a heterogeneous and highly textured body of work. Samaras' innovative approach and use of different media have earned him a significant place in contemporary American art history, and his work has exerted significant, yet under-recognized, influence on younger artists. This catalogue, which accompanies a major exhibition, offers a timely reevaluation of Samaras' life's work and his invaluable contributions to contemporary art. This fall, the Whitney Museum of American Art will mount a major exhibition of the work of Lucas Samaras. This will be the first exhibition of Samaras' work in an American museum in fifteen years, and the first major consideration of the artist's work in New York since 1972. No major Samaras exhibition has focused on his self-portraiture, although self-depiction is arguably the driving force of Samaras' entire oeuvre. The catalogue and exhibition will survey his career from the mid-1950s to the present, and will trace the self-portrait leitmotif throughout various media, including drawings, photo transformations, boxes, mirrored environments, and film.
