Essays that seek to redefine the status of theory in modernist critical discourse

Booknews

Art critic and historian Bois seeks to redefine the status of theory in modernist critical discourse. Warning against the uncritical adoption of theoretical fashions, he argues that theory is best employed in response to the specific demands of a critical problem. He considers the works of major artists of this century including Matisse, Picasso, Mondrian, Newman, and Ryman. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
