Description - Post-Impressionism to World War II by Debbie Lewer
"Post-Impressionism to World War II" is an exciting anthology of the best art history writings of the Post-Impressionist period. Several key essays by critics including Benjamin, Greenberg and Burger knit together primary sources and classic, 'canonical' criticism. This book: collects the most important writings on art history from Post-Impressionism to the mid-20th century, covering both canonical and contemporary perspectives; offers a chronicle of avant-garde practice during an especially creative, if volatile, period of history; features several key essays by critics including Benjamin, Greenberg and Burger; and, includes recent critical interventions from a range of methodological perspectives - both well-known and less familiar. This book organizes material thematically, and features introductory essays to each of the five sections. It provides a valuable, stimulating resource for students and teachers alike and offers new ways to think about and teach this important period in art history.
