this is often the 1st ebook to take heavily - although now not too heavily - the strangely missed position of humour in paintings.

'Art and Laughter' seems again to comedian masters corresponding to Hogarth and Daumier and to Dada, Surrealism and pa artwork, asking what makes us giggle and why. It explores using comedy in artwork from satire and irony to pun, parody and black and bawdy humour. Encouraging laughter within the hallowed house of the gallery, Sheri Klein praises the modern artist as ‘clown’ - usually ignored in favour of the function of artist as ‘serious’ commentator - and takes us on a travel of the comedian paintings of pink Grooms, Cary Leibowitz, ‘The furry Who’, Richard Prince, Bruce Nauman, Jeff Koons, William Wegman, Vik Muniz and lots of extra. She seeks out these infrequent smiles in artwork - from the Mona Lisa onwards - and highlights too the pleasures of the lovable, the camp and the downright kitsch.
