The Art in Painting

by Dr. Albert C. Barnes

John Dewey on The Art in Painting: "It does something which no other book on art criticism with which I am acquainted accomplished. It provides an intelligent objective criterion for perceiving the values of paintings. It does this not by laying down rules, but by showing what one should look for and what is irrelevant to his seeing. It will be indispensable to those who wish to go beyond erudition and academic opinion on one side and sentimentalism on the other." Third edition, 122 illustrations (black & white).
