Meaning Of Art

Meaning Of Art


First published in 1931, The Meaning of Art is an authoritative work that enables the reader to appreciate the subject, and its numerous disciplines, by examining the elements that led to the creation of art, and explaining their relevance and resonance within its wider context.

Surveying artwork from the dawn of time to the melting clocks in Dali's Persistence of Memory and Rodin's timeless sculptures, this book unravels the golden thread of inspiration and aspiration that has galvanised artists throughout history, while providing a fascinating overview of the movements in which they have all played parts.

With an insightful foreword by BBC Arts Editor Will Gompertz, the latest Faber Modern Classics edition of The Meaning of Art takes the reader on an informative and exciting journey, through a rich and ever-changing artistic landscape, that runs right up to the modern day.
