Textul de pe ultima copertă

""Seeing the Unspeakable "is an extremely important work. Gwendolyn DuBois Shaw is the first writer to place this controversial young artist's work firmly in an art historical perspective. She combines careful scrutiny of the art's formal traits with wide-ranging iconographic analysis, canny theoretical interpretation, and a revelatory examination of the work's critical reception. The result is an extraordinary piece of scholarship."--Judith Wilson, University of California, Irvine
