Description - To the Rescue of Art by Rudolf Arnheim

The author has spent a lifetime analyzing the basic psychological principles that make works of visual art meaningful, stirring, indispensable and lasting. But recent attitudes and theories about art, he argues, are undermining the foundation of artistic achievement itself. The essays collected in this volume amount to a call to arms. Included is a series of miniature monographs on a variety of great works of art. In other essays, the author uncovers enlightening perspectives in the art of the blind, in architectural space, in caricature and in the work of psychotics and autistic children. He also presents new scientific aspects on the psychology of art and widens our range of vision by connecting art with language, literature and religion.
