Cartoon, Caricature, Animation (Art History Special Issues)

Cartoon, Caricature, Animation (Art History Special Issues)

by Marcia Pointon (Editor), PaulBinski (Editor)


This book is devoted to art forms too often marginalized in conventional art-historical debate. It looks at animation, its past, present and future directions: the politics of caricature and the relationship of cartooning to high culture: and the longstanding role of marginal imagery in subverting or colluding with ideologies of the center. It includes an interview with the animator Irene Kotlarz on current advances and dilemmas in the field of animation and new technology and an article by Mark Langer on Walt Disney and the collusive role of the US animation industry during the Cold War era. Veronica Sekules contributes a study of the grotesque medieval sculpted marginalia of a parish church in Lincolnshire, and Laura Rempel and Linda Rozmovits continue the theme of British cartooning with pieces on Gillray and 19th-century antisemetic caricature. This book will be of interest to anyone working in animation and cartooning, and to all students of visual culture.
