From the Publisher

This history of painting is for people who can't tell Baroque from Gothic and Neoclassicism from Pre-Raphaelism and do not necessarily want to go there. It is produced by one who was in the same predicament not long ago. However, it is easier to appreciate and remember many paintings if you know what the painter is really trying to do, and where in the story his paintings fit in. Because a story it is. So to tell this story, we are going to make three mental buckets and sort out all the paintings in one of them. Some will not quite fit, but we will deal with that. We will keep this as simple as possible. All subchapter title paintings are part of The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York is not associated with this book in any way.

Art Is A Matter Of Life And Death In 'The Electric Sublime'

In a time when most types of government spending are under attack, a few brave souls have stepped up to defend those perpetually endangered hillocks of federally funded refinement, the National Endowments for the Arts and Humanities. The defenders haven't always managed so well. In a recent New York Times piece, Nicholas Kristof went so far as to argue that the august tradition of human cultural achievement should indeed be sustained because it has helped, somehow, to limit the practice of keeping hens in small cages. "The humanities have even reshaped our diet," he marveled. Kristof is just t
