At once highly seductive and deeply perplexing, John Currin’s paintings draw inspiration from such disparate areas as Old Master portraits, pinups, pornography, and B-movies. Currin layers each canvas with multiple scenes, creating paintings within paintings of idealized yet challengingly perverse images of women. Along with an insightful new essay, this beautiful book features over 45 color reproductions of his most recent paintings, spanning from 2011 to 2015. Written by James Lawrence.
