Levine Howard Singerman, “Art History, After Sherrie Levine” (UC Press; 304 pp; $65)

University of Virginia art historian (and former MOCA editor) Howard Singerman writes the first full monograph about Sherrie Levine, whose 1980s photographs of Walker Evans’ famous photographs of Great Depression-era subjects stood traditional notions of originality on their head.

Can poverty characterize ideas as well as people? Levine's photographs "after Evans" raised questions about art history "after Levine."

–- Christopher Knight
