- Petherbridge, Deanna, 1939-
About this work
Witches & Wicked Bodies provides an innovative, rich survey of images of European witchcraft from the sixteenth century to the present day. It focuses on the representation of female witches and the enduring stereotypes they embody, ranging from hideous old crones to beautiful young seductresses. Such imagery has ancient precedents and has been repeatedly re-invented by artists over the centuries. Deanna Petherbridge introduces this fascinating subject and includes insightful catalogue entries on each of the exhibited works. The illustrations primarily feature drawings and prints as well as a group of important paintings, all from British collections. A wide range of artists is represented including Durer, Cranach, Goya, Fuseli, Blake, Burra, Sherman and Rego. --Back cover.
