Color Plates. As New in As New jacket. Catalogue published to accompany exhibition of same title at The Fruitmarket Gallery, 1997. Contains Foreword by Graeme Murray, critical essays by John Calcutt and Jane Lee. One of a Limited Edition of 2000 copies. "Since graduating from Glasgow School of Art in 1987, Alison Watt (b. 1965) has been engaged in an ongoing study of the naked human body. This exhibition comprises a new body of work created over the past two years, including a diptych series commissioned by The Fruitmarket Gallery. The new diptych series has been directly inspired by the work of 19th century painted J. D. Ingres, in particular his erotic nudes. In his studies of the female form, Ingres explored the complex relationship between beauty and deformity, and by quoting him Watt hopes to 'challenge our notion of what is real and what is ideal. '"
