“The sister arts”: this time-worn notion tends to refer to literature and visual art, or, more narrowly, poetry and painting. It is predicated upon a firm distinction between the two. But Lessing happened some time ago. Mitchell's famous critique of the ideologies involved in maintaining the hierarchies between visual art and language notwithstanding, much energy in meetings and debates on “word and image studies” still goes into defending an essential distinction. Not so in John's work.
