Details

Among over 120 full-page details of paintings in this volume are the naked feet of Christ, Napoleon’s gold-embroidered boots and the discarded pink slipper of Ingres’ La Baigneuse de Valpinçon. Posing the question, ‘How can we decipher the mysteries – or the enigmas – concealed in this fragmentary narrative?’ Margo Glantz discusses this intriguing way of approaching art and the meanings that feet and shoes can convey. The full paintings appear at the end of the book.
