7 of 9 people found the following review helpful By GiovanniGF on October 29, 2006
Format: Paperback
I was surprised at how well these essays held up, and what a terrific writer Rosenberg was. Very witty as well, and not nearly as portentous as his better-remembered rival Clement Greenberg.

3 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Hiram Gomez Pardo HALL OF FAME on November 24, 2005
Format: Paperback
In the last Century, the art has ran vertiginously from vanguard in vanguard, in frank rupture not only with the tradition, but also with every movement immediately anterior. Rosenberg scrutinizes the different tendencies and besides, makes a itemized analysis about the form and expression around several issues; painting, literature, social behavior, conventionalisms, in a mesmerizing account of the most representative expressions and protagonists.

A fundamental book, that, despite its years, maintains actual interest.
