Elucidates Witkin's success in rendering subjects in ways both immediate and powerfully universal. As a master of realism, Jerome Witkin illustrates in his art the moral plight of everyday lives. His most complex and critically acclaimed works - intense, often disturbing scenes of the Holocaust - have earned him a growing international audience. This second edition of "Life Lessons" incorporates material from the past decade, including ten of his most important and provocative paintings. It brings the viewer in intimate contact with the dense interior landscapes of both people and places. Often regarded as belonging to an artistic pantheon including the work of Lucien Freud, Manet, Ingres, Goya, and Courbet, Witkin's paintings range from moody urban landscapes and penetrating portraits to intimate figure studies and vivid, psychologically charged tableaux, frequently referencing seminal moments in history. Witkin's newer work includes an enormous six-panel exploration of Dachau's 1945 liberation ("Entering Darkness", 2001) - his culmination of a twenty-year series on the Holocaust, regarded by critics as among the most compelling of paintings made on the subject.

We will take what we can get in regards to a tallent like Witkin. The essay alone is worth the price. It is really great to hear reasonable explanations for current art being produced. The big complaint I have is the size of the images. I have seen many of these painting in person and the tiny (and I do mean tiny) reproductions do not do it justice. I realize there are limitations, but Witkin deserves much better. One of the standards for great contemporary art books is Hausner's Heart Matters. That is a great art book. Big with lots of color images with enlargements through out. Witkins work is so very important for our times, he very much deserves a better venue for his work.

Not enough color reproductions.

Enjoyed learning about this artist and his work --beautiful draftsmanship combined with disturbing scenarios. Just wish the color plates were larger.

A wonderful tribute and insight into an important contemporary artist. I love his work and to understand his progression was very interesting to me.

This is a most wonderful book about the life and work of one of America's greatest realist painters, Jerome Witkin. The color plates are fabulous, as are the black-and-white images. It is possible, without seeing these works in person, to experience their enormous emotional power, and to appreciate the superb talent and technique of their creator. It does, however, produce a tremendous urge to see them in person!

The writing, too is superb. Ms. Chayat has a deep understanding of Witkin's work, and their connection to his life experiences. Although the biographical information is a bit sketchy, still, it serves to inform the reader sufficiently to be able to go to a deeper level of understanding the powerful images before us.

This is a must-have book, one which I highly recommend to anyone seriously interested in the best art produced in the past 50 years in America, or indeed, anywhere in the world.

I was familiar with his twin brother, Joel-Peter, and his macabre work for some time, so I figured Jerome's would be of the same caliber. I was wrong. The attention to detail and the ability to not only tell a story, but to allow you to cry out in answer to what is occurring is spellbinding. Awesome. I was only dissappointed by the limited amount of work shown in this book. I demand to see more. I must see more.
