Reader's note

This 1963 edition of The Meaning of Art by Herbert Read is the perfect read for an art history lover! This book's purpose is to provide a basis for the appreciation of pictures and sculpture by defining the elements which go to their making. The author persuades us to consider such fundamental terms as beauty, harmony, and pattern, so as to make sure that we use them with precision in our judgments, and he examines the complicated mental processes involved in the contemplation of works of art. There is also a survey of the world's art from primitive cave drawings to Jackson Pollock. Add to your vintage Pelican book collection today!
