Great images, stories explain a lot about the artist. Wiley s artwork is brilliant and mesmerizing, and I can understand how he has been countlessly defined as a wunderkind While I appreciate the size of this volume, the quality of the reproductions, and the organization of Wiley s work in chronological order from Conspicuous Fraud Series 1 Eminence 2001 Saint Gregory Palamas 2014 , I would seek criticism andinformation about him and his work elsewhere. I have enjoyed Mr Wiley s paintings for years now Every time I m in Brooklyn, I have to stop in at the museum so I can see Napoleon So, I was especially excited when my roommate brought this book home and left it on the coffee table I don t read a lot of art criticism, but I found this book to be accessible and engaging, just like Mr Wiley s artwork. Excellent reproduction of Art Supplemental explanatory text is somewhat weak and disorganized What a wonderful book which showcase all of the painting of Kehindey Wiley in updating some of the most popular paintings of past using today s models. Looking forward to reading the exhibit catalog after having just seen the artworks this weekend. Great showcase of his works, plenty of examples on good stock Several essays also explore his work.
