by Felix Burda-Stengel, Introduction by Hans Belting

ISBN: 978-0-916101-78-7, hardcover, 179pp + index, 95 b/w and color images.

A translation of a monograph originally published in German, this is the first book-length study in English of the Jesuit lay brother and artist Andrea Pozzo (1642-1709). The author brings together two very different art worlds -- Pozzo's baroque illusionist painting and the contemporary video art of Bill Viola, Bruce Nauman, and Gary Hall -- by focusing on the observer's standpoint, perspective, and change of perspective when moving, leaving the standpoint behind and adopting another.
