For centuries artists have been challenging their intellects and skills by paying homage to the painters who preceded them. Jenness Cortez has emerged as the 21st-century’s most notable exponent of this facet of art history, as she reexamines the classic paradox of realism: the painting both as a window into an imagined space and as a physical object. Pope, a member of the Baylor University Art Department faculty, teaches courses in 19th-century European and American art. One of 5,203 entries, this book won the Independent Publishers’ Outstanding Book of the Year Award for “Most Creative Concept.”
