Difficult, but essential
As an artist, I find this book a must read. It's difficult, but essential.
It was pivotal in opening my mind to a multifaceted way of looking at visual organization, composition, and development. I also gained a strong vocabulary for talking and thinking about paintings from any chosen era- an invaluable skill for anyone who falls in love with a particular painting but doesn't know why or how to explain it to others. In the way that The Painter's Secret Geometry developed my appreciate for the classics, this book helped me understand Modern art.
