The history of the visual arts can be regarded as a sequence of phenomena centered on the critical and popular recognition of particular modes of representation, or in the words of contributor Schiff, "perceptual incidence." As indicated by this handsome publication, produced in conjunction with a major retrospective exhibition at Tate Britain, Doig has become a phenomenon in the transatlantic art world. The remarkable appeal of Doig's paintings is evident in the appearance of this study within a year of Adrian Searle, Kitty Scott, and Catherine Grenier's monograph Peter Doig (CH, Aug'07, 44-6646). Another indication is the excellence of the color reproductions in this new work, accompanied by perceptive essays by art critic and historian Schiff and Nesbitt (Tate Britain). Their eminently readable text is further enhanced by a chronology, endnotes, a list of exhibited works, and index. Professionals and historians will value this work, and those with a more general interest in contemporary art will find much of interest. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students and above; general readers. R. W. Liscombe University of British Columbia
