THE SECRET LIVES OF ARTWORKS: EXPLORING THE BOUNDARIES BETWEEN ART AND LIFE. Ed. by Caroline van Eck et al. Leiden University Press, 2014. Distributed in the U.S.A. by University of Chicago Press. 412 pp. with 103 ills. 25 x 17 cm. ISBN 9789087281397 In English.
Publisher's description: Over the centuries, viewers have attributed life and agency to many works of art: they claim that portraits stare back or that statues move, breathe, and speak. The first volume to examine this phenomenon in detail, The Secret Lives of Art Works presents case studies from the visual arts, architecture, and beyond and engages critically with theoretical perspectives from art history, psychology, anthropology, and aesthetics. Combining historical research with an exploration of current approaches to the topic, The Secret Lives of Art Works offers a unified account of a fascinating experience in which art seemingly comes alive and engages its beholders.
