John Currin is one of the most skilled -- and witty -- painters working today.
He uses paint like an old master, yet always keeps the current context evident. He
is straightforward without being too academic, and never loses his sense of humor.
This monograph is substantial (382 pages), retrospective, and recent – exactly the
kind of book we wish to have in our library about every contemporary artist.
