MEDIA REVIEWS

"Beautifully written, very thorough analysis, interesting illustrations, excellent use of examples. The history of art criticism should be required reading in any class that purports to be a serious survey of modern art."

- Shepherd Steiner, Emily Carr University of Art and Design

"This textbook offers a thorough, comprehensive look at the major developments and approaches to art criticism in France, England and the Us over the past 3 decades. It is well-written and clearly articulates the main factors in conducting criticism. It includes hundreds of sort quotes by a wide variety of critics."

- Paul Ryan, Mary Baldwin College

"A helpful text that fills a gap in my course -- via providing a concise historical overview of art criticism and summaries of the various primary critical lenses. It also addresses the (healthy and valuable) difficulty of "defining" art criticism. The author's approach is democratic yet nicely held together by an informed tone."

- Barbara Jaffee, Northern Illinois University

"This textbook offers a thorough, comprehensive look at the major developments and approaches to art criticism. It is well-written and clearly articulates the main factors in conducting criticism."

- Margaret Doell,Adams State College

"I am very impressed with the clarity, directness, and breadth of knowledge that are on display."

- Richard Eldridge, Swarthmore College
