Editorial Reviews


"Janet Wolff's lucid book...effectively exposes some problematic aspects of the prevailing modernist discourses...." -- (Times Literary Supplement, June 20, 2003)

From the Inside Flap

"Janet Wolff is a refreshingly clear thinker and lucid writer. She consistently brings art history into dialogue with critical theory. Her intellectual background in the not-often complementary fields of social history and sociology drives her scholarship in yet a third field, art history, and does so in an enriching manner."-David M. Lubin, Wake Forest University

"AngloModern makes a valuable contribution to the scholarship on modern art, modernism, and identity. Most importantly, Janet Wolff rethinks modernist assumptions, moving in directions that are timely and essential."-Michael Leja, University of Delaware

"The myth that modernism in the arts represented a march toward abstraction has been repeatedly challenged. In Janet Wolff's remarkable new book, however, the ideological strategies by which this myth was created and disseminated are exposed and examined. Wolff demonstrates how masculinist bias and ethnic prejudice have been responsible for our inability to take modernity's realist tradition seriously."- Keith Moxey, Barnard College
