Overlay is Lucy Lippard's classic book on contemporary art and its connection to prehistoric sites and symbols. Viewed by critics, artists, art historians, and students as the essential text on how prehistoric images have been "overlayed" onto contemporary art by today's artists, Overlay is for anyone interested in the possibility of reintegrating art into the fabric of society as a whole, as in prehistoric times.

Lippard skillfully shows the 'primal urge' is a core issue in 'post-modernist' art. . . it is invaluable as an insider's synthesis capturing the consciousness of vanguard art in the recent past. -- Village Voice
Lucy Lippard has skillfully blended sun, moon, myth, and ritual in a search for the meaning and social function of art. -- Gerald Hawkins, author of Stonehenge Decoded and Mindsteps to the Cosmos
The book's strength lies in the depth of the author's commitment--her dual loyalty to tradition and modernity and her effort to restore the broken connection between the two. -- New York Times Book Review
