This book argues that in the works of Degas, Mondrian, Bacon, Schiele and
Warhol, serial iteration articulates a process of free, constructive
becoming which they interpret in different ways. Not only does the
serially iterative structure of the images show that activity and novelty
are primary concerns, but it involves the viewer in the activity presented
in the images. For these reasons, serial iteration is fundamentally
connected both to modernist aspects of the work and to other concerns such
as the structure of subjectivity and the movement of history. Serially
iterative structure opens up the meaning of these five artists images by
relating them to concerns in contemporary art and thought.
