Mark Ryden: the Gay '90s


Crowned 'the high prince of Lowbrow', Mark Ryden has become a fixture of the contemporary alternative art movement. In this book, the artist casts his skewed perspective toward the turn of the 19th century with such creepy yet beautiful works as a portrait of Abraham Lincoln dressed in foppish 1890s fashion and surrounded with a heavenly nimbus, Jesus Christ playing a pink piano for an audience of kewpie triplet girls, and a Gibson girl in a tight corset constructed entirely of meat.
