Painting, Largesse, and Life: A Conversation with Leah Durner is a companion to The Question of Painting: Rethinking Thought with Merleau-Ponty by Jorella Andrews.
The Question of Painting: Rethinking Thought with Merleau-Ponty by Jorella Andrews published by Bloomsbury, London, 29 November 2018.

Jorella Andrews' book, The Question of Painting, provides a closely focused, chronological account of Merleau-Ponty's unfolding philosophical project and its relationship with art, clarifying how painting, as a paradigmatically embodied and situated mode of investigation, helped him to access the fundamentally “intercorporeal” basis of reality as he saw it, and articulate its lived implications.

Leah Durner's painting, Rousseau (2006), is the cover image for The Question of Painting, and there are three full-page illustrations and a discussion of Durner's work in the book.
