KIRKUS REVIEW

A book designed to give the everyday art 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.
