Optative death : Gerhard Richter in the wake of the vanguard
McNamara, Andrew E. (2004) Optative death : Gerhard Richter in the wake of the vanguard. In Klaver, Elizabeth (Ed.) Images of the corpse : from the Renaissance to cyberspace. University of Wisconsin Press, United States of America, Wisconsin, Madison, pp. 133-152.
This compelling book brings together physicians; artists; and scholars of film, literature, philosophy, art, and politics to discuss the representation of the corpse in Western culture. Spanning a timeline from the Renaissance to the present, these essays introduce readers to a modern autopsy; a public execution and dissection in seventeenth-century England; the genre of postmortem photography; the corpse as artist's model; images of dead women in such popular films as Copycat and The Silence of the Lambs, and post-mortem scenes in the works of Flaubert, Balzac, Andres Serrano, and others.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
