Description

From the publisher: "Through his masterful use of the composite print and trademark playfulness of vision, Jerry Uelsmann early in his career extended the definition of the photographic print. In Museum Studies, the content of Uelsmann's works -- rather than the technique with which they were created -- define the rules of the game. The artist has selected 42 images spanning some thirty years of work, each containing elements from museums around the world. The result offers startling insight not only into the artist's muse, but also into the meaning of that universally-revered institution, the museum."
