DEPOSITIONS: SCENES FROM THE LATE MEDIEVAL CHURCH AND THE MODERN MUSEUM. Amy Knight Powell. Zone Books, Brooklyn, 2012. Distributed by MIT Press, Cambridge. 378 pp. with 84 ills. (8 col.). 24 x 17 cm. LC 2011-37203 ISBN 9781935408208 In English.
Examines the ways in which late medieval paintings and ritual reenactments of the Deposition from the Cross both depict the deposition of Christ and allegorize the "deposing" of the image itself, thus prefiguring the lowering of "dead images" during the Protestant Reformation and the repeated "deaths" of art since the advent of photography.
