In this issue, we meditate on Sally Mann’s landscapes of Civil War battlefields and learn about Man Ray’s forced flee from Paris to Los Angeles during World War II. Takashi Murakami reinterprets the work of Edo period painter Soga Shōhaku with scholar Nobuo Tsuji and Glenn Brown tells Hari Kunzru about the ways the past breathes life into his newest works. Author Francine Prose, in the first installment of her four-part series “The Lives of the Artists,” weaves a tale of a Venetian painter whose artistic talent is as much a curse as it is a gift. We look at Giuseppe Penone’s recent installation in the hills of Gstaad, the drawings of Richard Serra, and much more!
