Catriona MacLeod, a professor at the University of Chicago, writes about the intersections of art, literature, and film, with an emphasis on 18th- and 19th-century Germany. As a scholar and as the editor of the journal Word & Image, she has delved extensively into encounters between visual and verbal languages. Here, she discusses Silke Otto-Knapp’s paintings against the backdrop of Germanic creative histories and considers how the artist’s work draws from other fields of expression. The paintings in Otto-Knapp’s Renaissance Society exhibition reveal a highly developed visual and material language, while dealing richly in referential connections that open up subtle historical echoes of their own.
