Homemade esthetics observations on art and taste by Clement Greenberg ( )
16 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and held by 1,172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this work, which gathers previously uncollected essays and a series of seminars delivered at Bennington in 1971, Greenberg provides his most expansive statement of his views on taste and quality in art, arguing for an esthetic that flies in the face of current art world fashions." "Greenberg maintains - despite the attempts of some artists from Marcel Duchamp onwards to escape the jurisdiction of taste by producing an art so disjunctive that it cannot be judgedthat taste is inexorable. He argues that standards of quality in art, the artist's responsibility to seek out the hardest demands of a medium, and the critic's responsibility to discriminate, are essential conditions for great art. The obsession with innovation and the epidemic of newness leads, in Greenberg's view, to the boringness of so much avant garde art. He discusses the interplay of expectation and surprise in aesthetic experience, and the exalted consciousness produced by great art." "Homemade Esthetics allows us, particularly in the transcribed seminar sessions, never before published, to watch the critic's mind at work, defending (and at times reconsidering) his theories."--Jacket

Joán Miró by Rosa Maria Malet ( Book )
17 editions published between 1948 and 1969 in English and held by 756 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The bright colors and graphic strength of Joan Miró's paintings have made him immensely popular, but the artist would have been disappointed to see his work treated as little more than interior décor. This accessible survey of the artist's life and career explores the complex roots and darker shades that lie behind the evolution of Miró's work, from the culture of his Catalan homeland to his exposure to the Parisian avant-garde, and the rise of fascism in Spain. Alongside Miró's paintings, the author studies his sculpture, prints, and murals, quoting from the artist's own revealing statements. For anyone wanting to explore the visual legacy of the artist who declared that he wanted to "assassinate painting," this vividly illustrated book is the perfect guide. --- Book Description

Writing back to modern art : after Greenberg, Fried, and Clark by Jonathan Harris ( Book )
5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Here for the first time is a full-length study of the 'critical modernisms' of the three leading art writers of the second half of the twentieth century, which helps us build a better understanding of the development of modern art writing and its relation to the 'post-modern' in art and society since the 1970s. Focusing on canonical modern artists such as Manet, Cezanne, Picasso, and Pollock, this book provides the important understanding of writing and criticism in modern art for all students and scholars of art theory and art history. Mainstay issues discussed include aesthetic evaluation, subjectivity, and meaning in art and art writing, and Harris examines key discourses and identifies points of significant overlap as well as sharp disjunction between these critics. Developing the notions of 'good' and 'bad' complexity in modernist criticism, "Writing Back to Modern Art" creates ways for us to think outside of these discourses of value and meaning and helps us to look at the place that art writing holds in the latter twentieth century and beyond
