I really, really wish we could have seen more of her drawings as I think these reveal the real strength of her work. About a week before Christmas my A level art student daughter announced that she really wanted a book on Jenny Saville, and you did the business for me.

His character evolves through his personal voyage towards accepting death, and you encounter so many tales that you recognize from history. This is the opulently printed hardbound catalogue produced in conjunction with the 2002 Gagosian Gallery Beverly Hills exhibition of collaborative photographs by Jenny Saville and Glen Luchford. Covers are lightly soiled, scuffed and rubbed, with minor wear to edges - rubbing, slight creasing at corners.Saville had been captivated with these details since she was a child; she has spoken of seeing the work of Titian and Tintoretto on trips with her uncle, and of observing the way that her piano teacher’s two breasts—squished together in her shirt—became one large mass.

The four essays may be old to those who have followed her career, but to those to whom Jenny Saville is a discovery these four writings do add depth to understanding her skyrocketing rise to fame.Her time with the surgeon fueled her examination into the seemingly infinite ways that flesh is transformed and disfigured. The British artist Jenny Saville is best known for painting monumental close-ups of large nude women exposing things that are usually left unshown: flab, fat, bulge. It includes photos in her studio, enlargements of the work and clippings from some of her sketch books showing newspaper pictures and medical textbooks, which reveal the source of some of her later images. Today, when the body has never mattered more or counted less, Saville is undoubtedly the painter for our times. On the other hand, the close up images of her work do reveal her brush marks and are very interesting.
