Overview

A sustained theoretical, historical, and critical essay is how Summers (history of art, U. of Virginia) characterizes this synthesis and confluence of his thinking about art over many years of teaching and research. His broad themes include facture, places, the appropriations of the center, images, planarity, virtuality, and the conditions of modernism. His premise is that there is no absolute and universal art-history chronology, and that traditions of art constitute independent or interactive shapes of time, but it is still necessary to have a consistent and familiar chronological framework.
