About the book:

This fascinating book reveals the full range of William Wegmans art. Beloved by the general public for signature photographs of his troupe of Weimaraners, Wegman is also an immensely important figure in the contemporary art world.

A pioneer video-maker, conceptualist, performer, photographer, painter, draftsman, and writer, Wegman moves fluidly among various media: from conceptual works to commissioned magazine shots; from videos shown in museums to television segments made for Sesame Street and Saturday Night Live; from artists books parodying nineteenth-century naturalist studies to childrens books revealing tongue-in-cheek portraits of town and country life;  from photographic “landscapes employing his canine muses to his most recent cycle of landscapes combining found scenic souvenir postcards with drawing, collage, and painting. Underlying all his creations is the light humor of “funny mediating the darker human comedy of “strange. Speaking to the absurdities of daily life, Wegmans work is universally appealing.

William Wegman: Funney—Strange is illustrated with some 250 images. It is the first retrospective volume to consider the artists entire career from the 1960s to the 2000s and is an essential book for any fan of Wegmans work.
