In this issue, Drew Gilpin Faust meditates on Sally Mann’s landscape photographs of Civil War battlefields; Timothy Baum writes about Man Ray’s emigration from Paris to Los Angeles during World War II; Takashi Murakami, collaborating with scholar Nobuo Tsuji, reinterprets the work of Edo period painter Soga Shōhaku; and Glenn Brown tells novelist Hari Kunzru about the ways in which 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 a gift. We also take a close look at Giuseppe Penone’s recent installation in the hills of Gstaad, Switzerland; the drawings of Richard Serra; and much more!
