As an art student, this book is essiential to understanding the art world and the transition from art to modern art. It is a must read if you want a carrier in art or are interested in working in any art field
Requirement for 4000 level class at University of Oklahoma, the author ISN'T an easy read. With that being said its very well written and she is VERY knowledgable on the subject, however it is her opinions though.
Horribly wordy, strangely organized, and with long analogies practically unrelated to sculpture. Maybe if you really REALLY love sculpture or art history this could be interesting to you, but as a required text for one of my classes it is a tedious and gag inducing read.
