New display at the Circulation Desk for February: Painters Painting

Cover detail from the book: Imaginary Portraits of George Condo

Painting is dead!
What, again?
This alarm goes off periodically, but painting either bounces back,
or may never have been as lifeless as characterized.
Considering that painting has been around about 30,000 years,
and survived many transformations, including all the isms of
modern times, its staying power shouldn't surprise us.
It's still painters painting!
On display is a small selection of books on artists
who just that: paint!
