Reviews

"The Figure, has the look of a high-end coffee table decoration, but don't judge this book just by its Martha Mayer Erlebacher cover. Inside, you will find it crammed not only with striking images but also with essays by critics, artists, and other thinkers that air out thematically related historical, philosophical, theoretical, and technical issues. The Figure is an ambitious and overdue tome that fills a void..." -Huffington Post

"The Figure is a wide-ranging survey of contemporary art depicting the human body in all its splendor." -Wall Street Journal

"The Figure: Painting Drawing and Sculpture, has the look of a high-end coffee table decoration, but don't judge this book just by its Martha Mayer Erlebacher cover. Inside, you will find it crammed not only with striking images but also with essays by critics, artists, and other thinkers that air out thematically related historical, philosophical, theoretical, and technical issues. The Figure is an ambitious and overdue tome that fills a void: if you haven't noticed, contemporary representation is coming on strong. The figure is the greatest subject of all -- it will live as long as we do -- and this stimulating book reminds us... If there ever was an art book that needed to become a major exhibition -- or a maybe a salon -- The Figure is it." -Hyperallergic
