Book Description 
  
Throughout his remarkably prolific career of more than 40 years, Lucas Samaras has built a diverse and highly textured body of work, largely with his own image. Self-depiction is arguably the driving force of his life's work. This book, the catalogue for a major exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art, is the first to focus on his self-portraiture. Marla Prather surveys Samaras's career from the late 1950s to the present, tracing his self-portraits in various mediums, including drawings, photography, boxes, mirrored environments, and film. There will also be an extensive, illustrated biography of the artist, making the catalogue an essential source for scholars. Including some 300 illustrations, Unrepentant Ego demonstrates Samaras's critical place in art history, which he has earned by creating provocative, multifaceted work outside the dominant trends of his time.
