Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The second of four books which together constitute the main texts of an Open University course on art and its interpretation from the mid- 19th century to the end of the 1920s. Although organized chronologically, each chapter investigates a period or movement in relation to broader theoretical issues and problems of interpretation, raising questions about historical enquiry and methodology as well as about the status of "art." Generously illustrated in b&w and color. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
