Boxed Set

Published by George Eastman Museum.
Foreword by Bruce Barnes. Text by Lisa Hostetler, Joanna Marsh, Dave Hickey, Garry Trudeau, David Levinthal, Roger Rosenblatt.

Lavishly illustrated and beautifully made, this four-volume collector’s box set contains three books of plates illustrating all of Levinthal’s major series to date—from Hitler Moves East (1972–75) to History (2010–15)—in addition to never-before-published works. The images are organized around the three overarching themes of war, myth and desire, and introduced by texts from cartoonist Garry Trudeau, award-winning essayist Roger Rosenblatt and the artist himself. The final volume in the set makes a major contribution to scholarship on Levinthal’s work, bringing together new texts by the curator Lisa Hostetler and contemporary art specialist Joanna Marsh as well as commentary by art critic Dave Hickey.

David Levinthal: War, Myth, DesireDavid Levinthal: War, Myth, Desire

Published by George Eastman Museum.
Foreword by Bruce Barnes. Text by Lisa Hostetler, Joanna Marsh, Dave Hickey.

Since the mid-1970s, New York–based photographer David Levinthal (born 1949) has been exploring the relationship between photographic imagery and the fantasies, myths, events and characters that shape contemporary America’s mental landscape. David Levinthal: War, Myth, Desire is the most comprehensive publication ever produced on the artist, containing major contributions to scholarship on the artist by curator Lisa Hostetler and contemporary art specialist Joanna Marsh, as well as commentary by art critic Dave Hickey. The volume is illustrated with examples from all of Levinthal’s major series to date—including Hitler Moves East (1972–75), Modern Romance (1983–85), Wild West (1986–89), Desire (1991–92), Blackface (1995–98), Barbie (1997–98), Baseball (1998–2004) and History (2010–15). Levinthal’s work has been a touchstone for conversations about theories of representation in photography and contemporary art, and through his work, he has investigated the overlapping of popular imagery with personal fantasy in the contexts of romance, sex, war, history, sports, space and social stereotypes. This publication gives readers the opportunity for the first time to consider the full scope of Levinthal’s career as an artist.

David Levinthal: Modern RomanceDavid Levinthal: Modern Romance

Published by St. Ann's Press.
Essay by Eugenia Parry.

American-born photographer Levinthal has earned national recognition by creating potent, ironic, and sometimes controversial visions using miniature figures and toys as characters in staged tableaux. Since publishing his first major work in 1977 (Hitler Moves East: A Graphic Chronicle, 1941-43), he has worked with Barbie, blackface memorabilia, toy soldiers, and various modeling figures to explore the icons and stereotypes of popular culture. Levinthal executed his series Modern Romance in the mid-1980s. Echoing the paintings of Edward Hopper and film noir, these are scenes of urban life in dreamy neon-lit color and television blues. Levinthal shows us figures lingering on street corners, entering movie theaters, passing through alleys, conversing in diners, and interacting in confined spaces. He also depicts the impersonal landscape of the city: cop cars on the streets, doorways, and murky bedrooms. Levinthal's lovely and vaguely troubling photographs house a tension of possibilities; with details obscured, they speak of solitude, sexual isolation, and urban anxiety. An illuminating essay by Eugenia Parry opens the book, nicely placing this formative series in both a personal and an artistic context. This is serious art, dealing with fascinating ideas. Highly recommended for contemporary art collections of academic and public libraries. Deborah Miller, Minneapolis--Library Journal

David Levinthal: Small WondersDavid Levinthal: Small Wonders

Worlds in a Box

Published by D.A.P./National Museum of Amercian Art.
Photographs by David Levinthal. Contributions by David Corey.

In the general introduction to these first two books in the National Museum of American Art's new series, "American Scene," the series editor and series curator express a hope to "present the evolving portrait of America" in a time when "the myth of the `melting pot' has given way to a social fabric woven into a `coat of many colors.' " While that noble dream is well on its way to being realized here, the reality still does not quite feel like art. The work of Bernice Abbott and Robert Frank, referred to in the introduction, provides insights into American life but is also characterized by a particular way of seeing. These books have less the effect of art than of photojournalism-though perhaps the best sort, one encouraging contemplation rather than sensationalism. Unfortunately, the problem lies largely in the nature of series, the constraints of size and format and introduction, which here places as much weight on the editors' vision as the individual photographer's ability to see. That said, these are nonetheless valuable documents of today's middle America, by turns pleasant and disturbing, honest, and mythical. Pratt focuses on the county fairs of the Midwest, the traditions they maintain, and, most importantly, the people who attend them. Arndt photographs men, mostly working class, mostly in crumbling cities, establishing a sense of unity among his subjects that makes it the more successful of the books. In these two multiple-image portraits, public libraries will find a moving record of fading people and their traditions.-Eric Bryant Library Journal<
