Designed to explore different ways of seeing, creating space, and making art, this text is directed at art majors. Zelanski (U. of Connecticut) and Fisher (no affiliation is listed) discuss the works in formal terms, with little or no reference to their historical context, treating such themes as composition, space, and light. The fifth edition contains a section on art criticism and an expanded section on performance art.
