Late Harvest is characterized by unusual—and unforgettable—juxtapositions: contemporary art created with taxidermy sits alongside historically significant wildlife paintings. The result highlights intriguing parallels and startling aesthetic contrasts while simultaneously confirming and subverting viewers’ preconception of the place of animals in culture.
The volume presents more than one hundred images from the brilliantly creative exhibition of the same name, which was successfully mounted by the Nevada Museum of Art. It features such well-known contemporary artists as Richard Ansdell, Berlinde De Bruyckere, François Furet, Wilhelm Kuhnert, Polly Morgan, John Newsom, David Shrigley, and Joseph Wolf, among others. No lover of contemporary art or wildlife enthusiast should miss it. The exceptional design of Late Harvest, which sees the book as object, was done by California-based designer Brad Bartlett.
