In the history of Western painting, certain works have been accorded a standing higher even than fame. Admired without reserve, they belong to a special class, luminous across time, distance, and varied societies….Popular culture naturally exalts such pictures, though it also has the capacity to degrade them….Yet a work’s familiarity to the widespread public does not minimize, it actually enhances the mystery of its power. In order for an image to become an icon, magnificence may be an asset, whereas charisma is a prerequisite.
Max Kozloff is a New York based free-lance writer on art. During the 1960s, he was the art critic for The Nation magazine. His books from that period include a monograph on Jasper Johns, a study titled Cubism/Futurism, and a collection of essays, Renderings. Kozloff became Executive Editor of Artforum from 1974 to 1976, and still continues to write for that journal. He has won several awards and grants for his writings on photography. His own color negative street work in that medium has been shown in galleries and museums in the United States, India, Argentina, and England. In 2002, he wrote Theater of the Face Photographic Portraiture Since 1900.
