Elizabeth C. Mansfield engages the visual arts, literature, and performance to examine the Zeuxis myth. Mansfield considers depictions of the legend during the Renaissance, and offers interpretations of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, Picasso's Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, and Orlan's carnal art. Throughout, Mansfield asserts that the Zeuxis legend encodes an unconscious record of the West's reliance on mimetic representation as a vehicle for metaphysical solace._x000B_
