Published in 1891, this volume is a gathering of Moore’s previously published articles, largely revised or rewritten for the book’s publication. Moore offers incisive commentary and insights on such artists as Balzac, Verlaine, Rimbaud, and Degas, and proves to be a formidable art critic in a collection that the New York Times lauded as “fascinating.”

About the Author
George Augustus Moore (1852-1933) was a pioneering modern Irish writer. He had to fight against censorship early in his career. Despite the powerful forces arrayed against him, Moore succeeded in establishing realism as a legitimate literary mode. His best-known novels include A Mummer's Wife (1885) and Esther Waters (1894).
