Cindy Sherman Article Cited

First drafted as a job talk in 2004 (no, I didn’t get the job), and later reworked so as to not let my hard work go to waste, my 2007 article on Cindy Sherman’s “History Portraits” continues to have a life of its own.

MetroPictures, Sherman’s home gallery, found it when it first came out on Bread and Circus, the online magazine that I co-edit.  Once (but no longer) listed on the MetroPictures site, it is still listed on the Cindy Sherman bibliography page of the Sprüth Magers Gallery. With roughly 20, 000 hits to present date, the article has recently been cited in an interesting blog-article about the nachleben of the Baroque artist Caravaggio:

Why is Caravaggio so popular now? by author Robert Reincke.

Let’s hear it for “everything has a purpose.”  Even in academia.
