The Grotesque Factor

Text by Valeriano Bozal, Martin Clayton, Frances S. Connelly, Emmanuel Dreux, Werner Hofmann, José Lebrero Stals, Michel Melot, Luis Puelles, Xavier Tricot.

Featured image, "Amulet of a Woman in a Fit of Madness or of Tetanus," (Hellenistic period, Smyrna), is reproduced from <I>The Grotesque Factor</I>.Despite its longevity as a tradition stretching back to at least the eighteenth century, the Grotesque has only recently become a non-pejorative term in art and academia. The Grotesque Factor takes a close look at the evolution of the Grotesque, examining early caricature (Hogarth, Goya), abject, scatological and black humor, nineteenth-century French art and literature (Grandville, Baudelaire, Jarry), Jame Ensor, the grotesque in early film and the grotesque turn in recent British art. It includes 175 extraordinary works by more than 76 artists, including Francis Bacon, Louise Bourgeois, Otto Dix, James Ensor, Max Ernst, José Gutiérrez Solana, Victor Hugo, Paul Klee, Willem de Kooning, Roy Lichtenstein, René Magritte, Man Ray, Franz Xavier Messerschmidt, Juan Muñoz, Meret Oppenheim, Pablo Picasso, Richard Prince, Juan Sánchez Cotán, Antonio Saura, Thomas Schütte, Cindy Sherman, Leonardo da Vinci, Bill Viola and Franz West, among others.

Featured image, "Amulet of a Woman in a Fit of Madness or of Tetanus," (Hellenistic period, Smyrna), is reproduced from The Grotesque Factor.
