Published by University Galleries of Illinois State University.
Text by Charles F. Stuckey, Barry Blinderman, Vanessa Meikle Schulmen.

By 1980 Walter Robinson (born 1950) had established himself as a critic for Art in America and member of the New York artists' collective Collaborative Projects. He became notable for paintings of square-jawed detective-hero types and swooning vixens based on pulp romance covers. Employing what critic Carlo McCormick termed a "devious sense of irony done with incredible sincerity," he examined painting's relationship to mass-culture images of desire, mining lurid illustrations from the 1940s and 50s and rerepresenting them in a style culled from "how to paint" books. Robinson's subsequent paintings of beer cans and bottles, pharmaceuticals, fast-food burgers, Lands' End models and online erotic "selfies" continue to address our indulgence of longing and excess in a media-saturated world. Walter Robinson: Paintings and Other Indulgences is the first monograph on Robinson, with photographs of 140 paintings spanning his 35-year career.
