STUDIES IN WORLD ART
Books, monographs and essays
Linked to kindle editions
Cv publishes a collection of essays and reviews by the eminent art historian and writer, Edward Lucie-Smith. The articles cover the broad span of classical to 20th/21st century art and its progression by pathways of postmodernism to contemporary art. With the experience of his landmark publications on modern art, several of which remain in print; the author introduces the reader to aspects of cultural mechanics, from the outset of creative experiment and intervention, absorbed by an intricate arena of curatorship and collection, with luminous insights to flaws in its hierarchy and prospects for the future.
