Review

‘… an enormous contribution to the field and a triumph of editorial endeavour.’ Journal of Art & Design Education <!––end––>

"The volume provides the most wide–ranging and comprehensive collection of documents ever assembled on nineteenth–century theories of art. Like its highly successful companion volume Art in Theory 1900–1990, it is edited by Charles Harrison and Paul Wood, this time with an additional editor, Jason Gaiger. Its primary aim is to provide students and teachers with the documentary material for informed and up–to–date study. Its two hundred and sixty texts, clear organisation and considerable editorial content combine to provide a vivid and indispensable introduction to the history of the art of the period. The Anthology is also invaluable to anyone interested in the wider cultural debates of the nineteenth century, and in the development of modern aesthetic theories." Bollettino Del Publications

Format: Paperback
The book was so useful in my research and at the same time was very interesting and well presented. The introductions at the beginning of each chapter were very concise but highly informative. It was easy to make comparisons within the book at different artists and writers. A incredibly useful text of primary sources of artists and their works, as well as the external influences at that time.

The 'Art In Theory' series is a brilliantly edited collection of must-have source texts, together with lucid and valuable introductions to the selections. These are books to be used, even the quality of paper used and the way the volume stays open at any page you chose is a joy. Quite genuinely, along with RS Nelson's "Critical Terms for Art History", one of the few text books I expect to wear out with use.

If you ever want to know the beginning and origin of any art so social movement, the theory and philosophy behind it, how it changes over time. This is a great book to begin your critical inquiry. No nonsense... Include full credits of original source. Be aware, this is a highly academic book, not for easy reading but worth every bit.
