520 8  Painting has often been declared dead since the 1960s and 
       yet it refuses to die. Even the status and continued 
       legitimacy of the medium has been repeatedly placed in 
       question. As such, painting has had to continually 
       redefine its own parameters and re-negotiate for itself a 
       critical position within a broader, more discursive set of
       discourses. Taking the American Clement Greenberg's 
       'Modernist Painting' as a point of departure, After 
       Modernist Painting will be both a historical survey and a 
       critical re-evaluation of the contested and contingent 
       nature of the medium of painting over the last 50 years. 
       Presenting the first critical account of painting, rather 
       than art generally, this book provides a timely 
       exploration of what has remained a persistent and protean 
       medium. Craig Staff focuses on certain developments 
       including the relationship of painting to Conceptual Art 
       and Minimalism, the pronouncement of paintings alleged 
       death, its response to Installation Art's foregrounding of
       site, how it was able to interpret ideas around 
       appropriation, simulation and hybridity and how today 
       painting can be understood as both imaging and imagining 
       the digital. After Modernist Painting is an invaluable 
       resource for those seeking to understand the themes and 
       issues that have pertained to painting within the context 
       of postmodernism and contemporary artistic
