  • The latest title in the highly acclaimed Rethinking Art's Histories series
  • A critical analysis of the relations between visual art and vernacular visual culture within different image communities from the 1870s to present day
  • Includes four case studies, which discuss objects such as photocollages, window displays, fashion imagery and modern art projects
  • Bridges the gulf between the interpretative tradition of art history and the media studies focus on medium and technique
  • Maps visual statements where textural statements are scarce, demonstrating the potential of image studies
  • Uncovers the entangled history of mass media and art in modernity
  • Links different image communities and discusses the more general implications of the relations and exchange between the art field and other fields of visual cultural production
  • Fills an important gap in the field of visual studies through its use of a diversity of images as primary sources
  • Of relevance to those interested in art and visual culture in modernity, the notion of art and art history writing
