Theories of Modern Art : A Source Book by Artists and Critics Paperback
Part of the California Studies in the History of Art series
Herschel B. Chipp's Theories of Modern Art: A Source Book By Artists and Critics is a collection of texts from letters, manifestos, notes and interviews.
Sources include, as the title says, artists and critics-some expected, like van Gogh, Gauguin, Apollinaire, Mondrian, Greenberg, just to name a few-and some less so: Trotsky and Hitler, in the section on Art and Politics.
The book is a wonderful resource and insight into the way artists think and work.
