Photogenic Painting (2000) is a book by Gilles Deleuze and Michel Foucault related to the work of Gérard Fromanger.

This book is an English translation of "Le peintre et le modéle" (1973) by Gilles Deleuze and "Le désir est partout. La peinture photogénique" (1975) by Foucault.


The second title in the Revisions series features two of France's noted contemporary theorists writing about painter Gerard Fromanger. Deleuze analyzes the relationship between the painter and his model as eroticized merchandise within consumer society, and Foucault reexamines the painting-versus-photography debate from Ingres to the era of hyperrealism. Adrian Rifkin's introduction puts the critics in context and connects them to Fromanger's paintings today.
