Reviews

Framing Pictures is a welcome, major addition to the literature on the relationships between film and the other visual arts. Lucid, thorough, and wide-ranging, it is the work of a scholar both deeply grounded in the histories of art and cinema and current with contemporary art and critical discourses. Jacobs covers the entire intermedial territory, balancing wonderfully succinct overviews with close consideration of art documentaries, artist biopics, tableaux vivants, film stills, and the cinematic turn in contemporary art. -- Susan Felleman, Associate Professor of Cinema Studies, Southern Illinois University Carbondale, author of Art in the Cinematic Imagination (2006) Framing Pictures is a welcome, major addition to the literature on the relationships between film and the other visual arts.
