",', Book Reviews t','" "': installations. It is the directness, the confrontationality; and the specificity of these works mat he seems to find most effective. Regrettably, he views traditional approaches and the use of traditional religious iconography not only to be uninteresting to the present generation but, more fundamentally, incapable ofthe more intense expressivity demanded by the subject itself. In the final chapter, "Expressing the Inexpressible," Baigell is at his most moving as well as his most brilliant. Here he lets the artists, most of whom he has corresponded with and interviewed, do much of the talking. However, he also permits himself to analyze more works of art at closer range, and what follows is a virtuoso performance. Despite limited text space and often lacking an illustration (a shortcoming throughout the book), he compresses and concentrates words in such a way that the work of art is suddenly revealed to the reader in its richness and complexity. One can learn much from this book, most of all that there are more artists than we might ever have thought-the canonical, the famous, the not so well known, the short, the tall-who have responded with hand, mind, and amazing generosity
