Nineteenth Century Art: A Critical Historyby Stephen F Eisenman
Synopses & Reviews
Since its first publication in 1994, this book has established itself as the most popular and highly regarded textbook in the field. It embraces many aspects of the so-called "new" art history while at the same time emphasizing the remarkable vitality, salience, and subversiveness of the era's best art.
The new edition includes four revised chapters together with a substantially expanded chapter on photography. With more than a dozen new images, this rich and diverse volume will interest students, specialists, and anyone fascinated by this dynamic period.
In addition to Stephen F. Eisenman, the contributors are Thomas Crow, Brian Lukacher, Linda Nochlin, David Llewellyn Phillips, and Frances K. Pohl.
Handsomely illustrated....The interpretations of [the artists'] work are thoughtful.An impressive encyclopedic volume...such vigor, clarity, and scholarship that it must be regarded as required reading.
"Rich in ideas and illustrations...of interest to scholars and art enthusiasts alike."--Library Journal
