13 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and Multiple languages and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Having sketched out the historical background, Gibson goes on to argue the painting's relevance to the contemporary world. In doing so, he develops an innovative theory of image and myth."--BOOK JACKET
