Description
Speaking to his penchant for difficult or vulgar subject matter, despite his almost cartoonish forms, San Francisco–born painter Peter Saul noted, "Putting crime, war, sex, distortion and low class stuff into the picture is a way to take the decoration out of the picture—literally remove it from the dining room because no one is going to drink orange juice in the same room with it." Saul fuses his MAD Magazine–inspired humor with a Surrealist painting style to create difficult, trenchant, yet often funny works, presaging Paul McCarthy and Mike Kelley and exerting noticeable influence on artists such as Barry McGee and Ed Templeton. This wide-ranging monograph, with 94 color reproductions, provides the first complete overview of Saul's work over the past five decades—from his epic historical canvases to his homage to Thomas Hart Benton, his lampoons of the art world's sacred cows, and more recent works satirizing current affairs.
