The Modernist Madonna: Semiotics of the Maternal Metaphor

Front Cover
Indiana University Press, 1989 - Mother and child - 215 pages
Van Buren's analysis centres on the history of the evolving maternal signifiers presented in the artists' works. She peels away layer after layer of images to uncover the meanings contained in the artistic texts. The maternal metaphor is scrutinized through the lenses of semiological, psychological, psychoanalytic and historical insights.
