Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
‘… an enormous contribution to the field and a triumph of editorial endeavour.’ Journal of Art & Design Education

"The volume provides the most wide-ranging and comprehensive collection of documents ever assembled on nineteenth-century theories of art. Like its highly successful companion volume Art in Theory 1900-1990, it is edited by Charles Harrison and Paul Wood, this time with an additional editor, Jason Gaiger. Its primary aim is to provide students and teachers with the documentary material for informed and up-to-date study. Its two hundred and sixty texts, clear organisation and considerable editorial content combine to provide a vivid and indispensable introduction to the history of the art of the period. The Anthology is also invaluable to anyone interested in the wider cultural debates of the nineteenth century, and in the development of modern aesthetic theories." Bollettino Del Publications
