To Scale, with Professor Joan J. Kee
This innovative new volume offers an in-depth exploration of scale, one of the most crucial elements in the creation and reception of art. It illustrates how scale has compelled audiences to rethink the significance and importance of specific works of art. It takes a comparative art historical approach exploring issues of scale in an array of forms, from Islamic architecture to contemporary photography. And it offers a global consideration of scale, with examples of work from ancient Egypt, eighteenth-century Korea, and contemporary Europe.
