nothing like being there

Illustrations and Amplifications

for John Berger's*

Ways of Seeing

(* John Berger, Sven Blomberg, Chris Fox, Michael Dibb, and Richard Hollis)

This site began as part of the work of the Markup Languages and Hypertext seminar at the University of Washington, Fall, 1998. Its purpose is to provide more compelling reproductions of the paintings, though the viewer should bear in mind that many of these paintings are many times larger than any computer screen now available, and that scale contributes a great deal to impact. Judging by traffic, the site has met a real need, and I have updated it as numbers and resolution of images have increased. Some images use dejavu and require a plugin for the browser.

Walter Benjamin's "The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction" is available on line.

Daniel Chandler has a nice set of notes on the Gaze.

A special feature is Archduke Leopold William's Gallery: the painting by David Teniers the Younger (Ways, p. 85) is a 17th century catalog of the Archduke's collection; it looks like an array of thumbnail copies, and it is here made into an imagemap where many of the individual paintings link to full-screen reproductions. Teniers, I think, would have approved.

Several of Berger's points about the social function of Art in modern Britain are dilated upon and extended by Graham Harwood (of Mongrel) in his alternative website for the Tate Gallery.
