He studies the complex relation between the "look" of images and the variety of social and cultural uses to which they are put and demonstrates that the meaning of any image is significantly determined by its function, which changes over time. In Part 1, Leppert addresses the nature and task of representation, discussing how meaning accrues to images and what role vision and visuality play in the history of modernity.

This implies that people acquire and construct knowledge about the socio-cultural group to which they belong, the world and other cultures through visual culture, and that it enables them to compare, contrast, negotiate and appropriate cultural values, codes and norms, and construct and reconstruct their identities.

In Art and the Committed Eye Richard Leppert examines Western European and American art from the fifteenth to the twentieth century. He studies the complex relation between the “look” of images and the variety of social and cultural uses to which they are put and demonstrates that the meaning of any image is significantly determined by its function, which changes over time. In particular, he emphasizes the ways in which visual culture is called on to mediate social differences defined by gender, class, and race.In Part 1, Leppert addresses the nature and task of representation, discussing how meaning accrues to images and what role vision and visuality play in the history of modernity. Here he explains imagery's power to attract our gaze by triggering desire and focuses on the long history of the use of representation to enact a deception, whether in painting or advertising.Part 2 explores art's relation to the material world, to the ways in which images mark our various physical and psychic ties to objects. The author analyzes still life paintings whose subject matter is both extraordinarily diverse and deeply paradoxical—from flower bouquets to grotesque formal arrangements of human body parts. Leppert demonstrates that even in “innocent” still lifes, formal design and technical execution are imbued with cultural conflict and social power.Part 3 is devoted to the representation of the human body—as subject to obsessive gazing and as an object of display, spectacle, and transgression. The variety of body representation is enormous: pleased or tortured, gorgeous or monstrous, modest or lascivious, powerful or weak, in the bloom of life or under the anatomist's knife, clothed or naked. But it is the sexual body, Leppert shows, that has provided the West with its richest, most complex, contradictory, conflicted, and paradoxical accounts of human identity in relation to social ideals.

I keep referring to this book, its beautifully written, provides a thoughtful, non-judgemental overview of critical elements of the body in art.

Since prevailing French philosophy like theories of Foucault, Lacan, Derrida..., So many art historians seems like to use their language as 'politics of seeing', 'body politics'...The author of this book, Richard Leppert is not exception. He deply his position of writing on base of French philosophy or contemporary cultural theroy like Post colonialism. Contents of this book composed of 3 parts. Part 1: Sight/Sites for Seeing - about through the representation of painting, classical way of making pictures, few persons who have powers controll innocent people(mass) who not belong to main system. For simple example, at 19C some painters was drawn the money exactly(MONEY PAINTINGS) for the guests want illustion of millionaire. Part 2: Object - it's so similart with part 1. People represent(or supply) and ask (demand) the object pictures they want to have. But there is specific dogma! AS they paint the stil life, Stil life have the ANOTHER meaning - instruction on morality. For example, Flower means getting older people like fallen petals, And skull mean death directly! memento mori "Remember death" Humm.... Part 3: Body - it's so popular theme in contemporary cultural sciences. shortly speaking female body is reflection of desire of men's spectators. but through male nude painter reflect his oedipus complex in it. In conclusion. [Art and the committed eye] for students majoring art history or theory of art and interested in ART itself. But as previously titled, this book so famous and good for the side of introductory of new theory. But Not novel! Because the contens of this book already shown in other phiosophical studies and art historian's essay like John Berger [Ways of Seeing] or Mary Anne [ Believing is Seeing]... And right of choice is yours.
