"This superb collection of newly classical writings proceeds from the virtual end of painting in 1981 to its many re-emergences, all the more vital each time. Whether an individual text questions, explains or marvels at what painting can do, each merits attention, even a painter's attention." - Richard Shiff, Professor of Modern and Contemporary Art of Europe and America, University of Texas at Austin "The great number of young artists who set out each year to become painters should long ago have put to rest conversations about the so-called death of painting. But this debate has been far too evocative for the art would simply to let it go, as Terry R. Myers points out in his introduction to this superb collection of iconic essays by artists and writers. His curated volume is full of revelations, demonstrating that it is the tension between the desire for painting and the theoretical arguments it provokes that continues to keep us intellectually and visually enthralled. This terrific anthology lays it all out." - Carol Becker, Dean of Columbia University School of the Arts, author of Thinking in Place: Art, Action and Cultural Production.
