Uneasy is right 17 Jun. 2012
By toronto - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a very irritating book with all kinds of beautiful pictures and lots of information. The irritation is that the author feels obliged to show off and connect everything in the universe to his topic(s), and much of the time it is only vaguely relevant. We get dissertations on whiteness, and how Mies Van der Rohe uses white in his architecture, which is obviously linealy connected to Whistler, etc., etc. (not). Darwin appears because a painting was made in 1858, and it was a big year for important things like books. And so on. There is a lot of repetition, mostly unnecessary. The author really has nothing original to say that I can think of, but did a ton of research, for which one is grateful. But really, give the digressions a rest.

Meanwhile, there are all these lovely pictures (there is an appendix of etchings).
