Publisher Comments:

This unique and extraordinarily rich collection of writings offers a thematic approach to understanding the various theories of art that illumined the direction of nineteenth-century artists as diverse as Tommaso Minardi and Georges Seurat. It is significant that during the nineteenth century most artists felt compelled to found their artistic practice on a consciously established premise.

Synopsis:

A theory of art may be many things, from a complex philosophical treatise to a few basic observations jotted down by an artist that illumine the direction of his work. The late eighteenth-and nineteenth-century writings gathered here were selected not because they completely formulate systems governing art, but because they were closely allied with artists responded, and some were composed by critics or historians who were in close touch with the artists and sought to explain their artistic goals.

Joshua C. Taylor was Professor of Art History at the University of Chicago and Director of the National Museum of American Art from 1970 until his death in 1981. James L. Yarnall, formerly of the National Museum of American Art, prepared and edited the manuscript for publication.
