Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
From trend-setting British collector/ entrepreneur Charles Saatchi comes the companion volume to a three-part exhibition of the same name at his eponymous gallery in London. Announcing a watershed moment in contemporary art-the triumphant return of the "image" as depicted by paint on canvas-this unusual show purports to document painting's latest renaissance, starting with works from the 1980s and 1990s by the eclectically offbeat and legendary Martin Kippenberger and then expanding to paintings by younger artists dated as recently as 2004. All 56 artists profiled have well-established reputations, almost half work in Britain or Germany (only eight in the United States), and all the paintings exhibited belong to Saatchi. In 1981, the Royal Academy's A New Spirit of Painting made a similar attempt to reclaim the two-dimensional medium and fizzled; the jury is out as to whether Triumph can succeed. Saatchi has been called a shameless self-promoter, a visionary patron of the arts, and some combination of the two, but one thing is clear: his lavish slab of a catalog will be sought out by contemporary art lovers of all camps. Though light on text, it presents vivid, full-page reproductions of over 200 of the 350 paintings exhibited. For all large public libraries and academic libraries supporting an arts curriculum.-David Soltesz, Cuyahoga Cty. P.L., Parma, OH Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    More of Interest than Interesting

    The Saatchi Gallery remains a potent force in the art world, literally defining the rapidly changing trends in art within a matter of months (and that is transient!). This hefty book shares with those who are unable to visit this exhibition the works of five artists Saatchi Gallery considers to be the avant-garde of art today. The artists include Peter Doig, Marlene Dumas, Luc Tuymans, Jorg Immendorff and Martin Kippenberger among the fifty six artists in the year long exhibition. While many of the artists are known some are less well known and for a reason (!). The collection is not exciting nor particularly daring. Most of the imagery is suggestive of representation and of those mostly the figure dominates with varying degrees of success. Catalogues of this sort feel more like promotional materials for a commercial gallery than documents on the state of art today. The reproductions are fine: it is the content that becomes almost wearing. There is no doubt that Charles Saatchi has been a significant mover in contemporary art form his stance in London. But this particular collection from his stable fails to catch fire. Grady Harp
