內容簡介

The Silhouette: From the 18th Century to the Present Day
Vigarello, now translated by Dörr, offers this study into the history of meaning behind the human body contour starting with the invention of the word "silhouette" in the 18th century and the use of shaded figures and faces in art. The book goes on to examine the precursors of silhouetting and the artistic currents and cultural influences that brought the style into usage and developed it into the Romantic period. The third part discusses the influence of new graphical technologies on drawing attention to the body form in art and in society. The evolution of expression through the body silhouette and norms classified by gender and race are explored. The final chapters touch on the modern experience of the silhouette and its symbolism of identity and character attributes. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
