Can time pass in paintings? How can painters show movement in still, unchanging images? While a story normally takes time to tell, pictures offer their narrative all at once - they have no beginning, middle or end. How then can a still and silent picture tell a story that unfolds over time? Exploring these and other questions, Alexander Sturgis investigates the intriguing relationship between painting and time. Hogarth's paintings of Before and After tell a simple (if somewhat scurrilous) story by using sequential images to show time's progress - a technique whose use can be traced from the earliest manuscript to the modern comic strip. In contrast Rembrandt's Belshazzar's Feast encapsulates a whole tale in one moment of fear and realisation. Drawing on works by artists as varied as Hergi and Uccello, the author begins by considering the different ways in which unmoving images can evoke the progressions of an unfolding story. He then looks at how conveying the impression of rapid movement and the fleeting moment has challenged artists from the earliest times. It was not, for example, until the seventeenth century that spinning wheels were painted blurred: before then artists carefully delineated each spoke of a wheel. He also explores, through the work of artists such as Edgar Degas, Edvard Munch and the Italian Futurist Gino Severini, the far-reaching impact of early photography on painters' depiction of movement. No two people see exactly the same picture, and looking at paintings, in itself, takes time. The book's final chapter is devoted to showing how people actually see images: how our eyes take in the information a painting presents, and how the same picture can be seen differently by different people. Telling Time is an accessible introduction to a theme that has preoccupied artists for centuries. SynopsisAn investigation of the intriguing relationship between paintings and time. Drawing on works by artists as varied as Herge and Uccello, it considers the different ways in which images can evoke the progressions of an unfolding story. The last chapter explores the impact of early photography. See all Reviews
