A lively presentation of J. Seward Johnson's remarkable three-dimensional re-creations of famous Impressionist paintings. From Rockefeller Center in New York City to the Osaka Museum in Japan, J. Seward Johnson's life-like, cast-bronze sculptures of everyday people inhabit parks and public spaces around the world and are easily recognizable. Now Johnson has turned his hand to re-creating famous Impressionist paintings in three dimensions. His life-size tableaus of Manet's Luncheon on the Grass, Van Gogh's Room at Arles, Renoir's Luncheon of the Boating Party, and many other iconic paintings invite viewers to walk straight into these hallowed scenes. Beyond The Frame illustrates the process Johnson uses to create his cast-aluminum tableaus, designed to withstand touching and tactile exploration. Readers will also get to see the finished works not only from the perspective that replicates the two-dimensional painting, but also from other angles that reveal unusual, behind-the-scenes touches.
Author Biography: J. Seward Johnson, Jr. lives in Princeton, New Jersey. His life-size sculptures are featured in private collections and prominent public spaces around the world including Rockefeller Center, the World Trade Center, and Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver, Canada.
