3.0 out of 5 stars History of nineteenth century: a view of Art critics, 23 April 2007
V. Adelkhanov "Otkritie" (London, UK) - See all my reviews
Starting with the quote from Karl Marx, authors continue to look on Nineteenth century art and Art in general from ideological point of view. From revolution to revolution, from war to war, artists are left to express the ideas and represent the images of historical events and historical figures, so art becomes secondary compare to other life experiences. There is no focus on individual artists, but rather on -isms and political tendencies. Even with the appreciation for the work authors put in writing this lengthy book, one is puzzled with the question: What was in fact their primary goal?
