From the Publisher"All three of these books are essential additions to any public orprivate library concerned with Art. For the reader who comes anovice to this discipline they provide a superb first entry pointto an otherwise bewildering array of publications concerned withthe theory of art. Rather like a jigsaw puzzle they encourage thereader to make the connections that will complete the picture. Butmore importantly, what each of these anthologies does brilliantlyis to tempt the relative novice to go further with their research.By presenting an overview of the evolution of a set of ideas withindefined parameters and over a specified period of time through theerudite selection of sensitively edited primary texts, the readeris subtly invited to seek out the originals and flesh out theirunderstanding. For those who are more experienced in the field theycleverly provide a means of prompting new ideas within the reader'sfield of enquiry."
