American artist Sherrie Levine uses techniques of appropriation, repetition, and variation to create highly original art that could be no one’s work but hers. This book presents fifty of those works, which draw on originals by Duchamp, Cézanne, Degas, Van Gogh, Mondrian, and others, developing them in unexpected conceptual directions and making use of historical cliches; the result forces viewers to both reconsider the original works that have long been too familiar to provoke thought, and to think about the process and techniques of reproduction and adaptation that Levine deploys. In addition, art experts place her work in context with the international contemporary art scene.
