Model and supermodel

The artists' model in British art and culture

Jane Desmarais, Martin Postle, and Martin Vaughan

Published by Manchester University Press

Critical Perspectives in Art History MUP

  • Reflects the recent revival of interest in figurative art which has prompted a reassessment of the whole position of the artist's model
  • Contains a range of associated discussions from a variety of perspectives, including a consideration of the cultural historical resonance of the model and the use to which individual artists as different as Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Lucian Freud put their models
  • Does not argue a particular theoretical standpoint or posit a revisionist approach, but offer a series of lively takes on the phenomenon of the artist's model
  • Includes two interviews, with an artist (Peter Blake) and a model (Susannah Gregory)
