3.0 out of 5 stars One of few books available on Saville. 14 Jan. 2014

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I wish it were a larger format book and had more of Saville's works but, so far, this is as good as it gets.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful catalogue documenting the first US solo museum exhibition of Jenny Saville's work 6 Sept. 2012
By Artbook Collector - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book documents the Jenny Saville exhibition that was up earlier in the year at the Norton Museum in Florida. Surpringly this was her first US solo museum exhibition, though she has had a number of gallery shows in NYC.

This lovely catalogue has a different feeling her previous books. First it is a smaller format,clothbound book. It has a really nice feeling overall. It features a wide selection of her work, from her first Sensation era-self portraits to her most recent work that was shown at Gagosian Gallery in 2011.

The book is BEAUTIFULLY printed by Meridian Printing in Rhode Island (to give you a sense of quality, they normally print all of Lee Friedlander's books). Although the reproductions are smaller than those in her Rizzoli monographs, in a way these might be the best Saville reproductions in book form. Very rich in tone, very accurate in color.

There are a couple of solid essays, as well as some studio photographs. It doesn't cover much new ground compared to her other books, but all in all this is both a necessary addition to any figurative painting shelf and also functions as an excellent primer on the artist. It is a gem-RECOMMENDED!

Please note: Apparently this book was produced in small run so it won't be available for long. If you are thinking of buying this book, my sense is that you should do so soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Geography of the Human Form 9 Feb. 2002
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Jenny Saville is a focused contemporary painter who has been consistently driven to explore the myriad facets of the human figure. She selects models of corpulant physiques, transgendered models, and self portraits as seen compressed against glass. Her brush strokes are large but sure. The very sizes of her canvases (many are wall-sized epics) imitate her models. And yet what is the artistic statement about these huge works? One of tenderness, of love for flesh, of respect for what some may consider unseemly. Saville charts her territories with insightful grandeur, all the while making these huge canvases of huge women somehow vulnerable and noble. The book contains little writing, allowing the pages to be filled with well reproduced paintings. JENNY SAVILLE: TERRITORIES will go down as a landmark in the artists of the 21st Century dialogue about the way we see others...and ourselves. A very beautiful monograph!
