Abstract

This diverse group of books forces the question: what is iconoclasm? How can we find meaning in this term, which is alternately used here to describe the destruction wrought by Calvin’s ardent followers, the exquisitely deliberate transmutations of an art conservator, and the sly reappropriations of earlier works perpetrated by numerous contemporary artists? Taken together, these four publications represent an eclectic reach for profound questions about the larger meanings of art in varied religious, political, and cultural contexts.
