Publisher Comments:

Leo Steinbergand#8217;s classic Other Criteria comprises eighteen essays on topics ranging from and#8220;Contemporary Art and the Plight of Its Publicand#8221; and the and#8220;flatbed picture planeand#8221; to reflections on Picasso, Rauschenberg, Rodin, de Kooning, Pollock, Guston, and Jasper Johns. The latter, which Francine du Plessix Gray called and#8220;a tour de force of critical method,and#8221; is widely regarded as the most eye-opening analysis of the Johnsand#8217;s work ever written. This edition includes a new preface and a handful of additional illustrations.

and#8220;The art book of the year, if not of the decade and possibly of the century. . . .The significance of this volume lies not so much in the quality of its insightsand#8212;although the quality is very high and the insights are importantand#8212;as in the richness, precision, and elegance of its style. . . . A meeting with the mind of Leo Steinberg is one of the most enlightening experiences that contemporary criticism affords.and#8221;

and#8212;Alfred Frankenstein, Art News

and#8220;Not only one of the most lucid and independent minds among art critics, but a profound one.and#8221;and#8212;Robert Motherwell
