This is a repeat report, since the book was postponed to this date. ""A book designed to give the everyday appreciator a real basis for his appreciation, written by a teacher and painter who believes that there are certain fixed principles by which one should judge art. An interesting, intelligent analysis of what makes a good picture is the result. Quality, texture, brush strokes, contours, color, chiaroscuro, composition, design, subject matter, originality -- all components of the brief survey of styles in painting, types of painters, modern trends and the business side of art. Fully illustrated, both with anecdote and with reproductions of works under discussion.
