Narcissus Reflected
Written by the exhibition’s curator, David Lomas, this major book explores the potency of the Narcissus myth in art.

From Salvador Dalí’s painting Metamorphosis of Narcissus (1937) to Pipilotti Rist’s video installation Sip My Ocean (1996), ‘Narcissus Reflected’ keeps in play the full variety of meanings of the myth, exploring, and seeking to explain, the enduring appeal of the Narcissus subject in art.
