Description Written by the exhibition’s curator, David Lomas, this major book explores the potency of the Narcissus myth in art. Featuring illustrations and discussions of all the works in the exhibition, the book explores the theme further through the work of a range of additional artists including Max Ernst, André Masson and Bill Viola, investigating the many meanings and interpretations of the myth in modern and contemporary art. From Salvador Dalí’s painting Metamorphosis of Narcissus (1937) to Pipilotti Rist’s video installation Sip My Ocean (1996), ‘Narcissus Reflected’ keeps in play the full variety of meanings of the myth, exploring, and seeking to explain, the enduring appeal of the Narcissus subject in art.
