KIRKUS REVIEW

A specialized book, not a short cut to understanding modern art for the man in the street. A book for the people who care profoundly, and who want to rescue art from its defenders, who confuse the issue by their defense. She discusses the issues at stake, the quarrel between the traditional and the modern fields, and she expands particularly on the subject of Cezanne and his place in the pattern.
