Provides an innovative, rich survey of images of European witchcraft, from the sixteenth century to the present day .Contains fascinating new research in this area .Accompanies the Edinburgh Festival show ofWitches and Wicked Bodiesheld at theScottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh, from July - October 2013 Witches & Wicked Bodiesprovides an innovative, rich survey of images of European witchcraft from the sixteenth century to the present day. It focuses on the representation of female witches and the enduring stereotypes they embody, ranging from hideous old crones to beautiful young seductresses. Such imagery has ancient precedents and has been repeatedly re-invented by artists over the centuries, to include scenes with corpses and cauldrons, caverns and kitchens, and the dead being raised through demonic or satanic rites - all inversions of an ordered and religious social world. Petherbridge introduces this fascinating subject and includes catalogue entries on each of the exhibited works. The illustrations primarily feature drawings and prints as well as a group of important paintings. A wide range of artists is represented including Durer, Goya, Fuseli, Blake, Burra and Rego."
