De-definition of Art by Harold Rosenberg

Book Description

"Like the great German critic Walter Benjamin, Rosenberg is a master of dialectics whose sense of art is continuous with his sense of society, and (also like Benjamin) bears no taint of compromised, out-of-work radicalism. Instead, his radicalism is very much at work, enabling him to spot and skewer fallacies, false logic and the camouflaged nudity that is a large part of the art emperor's new wardrobe. [The De-definition of Art] detects with great sensitivity the forces that are deflecting and pressuring art in the direction of esthetic and moral nullity." Jack Kroll, Newsweek "

Books By Author Harold Rosenberg

Tradition of the New by Harold Rosenberg Tradition of the New, Paperback (August 1994)

Harold Rosenberg was undoubtedly the most important American art critic of the twentieth century. It was he who first coined the term "Action Painters" to refer to the American Abstract Expressionists

Art on the Edge by Harold Rosenberg Art on the Edge, Paperback (June 1983)

"As a stylist, in his descriptions of art and movements and books, Rosenberg has no equal. . . . One is grateful for [this] essay collection. To my mind, his piece on art criticism and the distinction between it and art history is alone worth the price of the book." Corinne Robins, "New York Times Book Review ""
