Under the Sign of [sic]

$25

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Art scholars might argue that concept, not flattery, was at the root Elaine Sturtevant’s work, in which she manually copied pieces by pop artists ranging from Roy Lichtenstein to Andy Warhol, at one point inspiring Claes Oldenburg to say he wanted to kill her. Intrigued yet? “Under The Sign of [sic]: Sturtevant’s Volte-Face,” is a challenging and informative undertaking written by Bruce Hainley, and the first book-length monograph of her art to be released in English.
