This volume presents eighty-nine influential texts that have played a significant role in shaping modern judgments & values about art. Emphasizing the debates & ideological assumptions around the Western canon of art, the book ranges through art history from Pliny the Elder to current issues of gender, post-colonialism, & museum policy. A general introduction to the book provides a survey of recent debates on the canon of Western art. The source texts & critical writings of the volume are then organized around six art history topics: academies, museums, & canons of art; the changing status of the artist; gender & art; the challenge of the avant-garde; views of difference; & contemporary cultures of display. The source texts, each prefaced by a short introduction with information about the author & guidelines for reading the text, include seminal writings by Vasari, Le Brun, & Baudelaire, among many others, as well as examples of different kinds of literature on art-a contract, a biography, an academic discourse. And the critical writings for each section of the book offer a variety of perspectives on art & revisions of art history.
