Description
This lucid and persuasive book is the first comprehensive treatment of art history from a structuralist viewpoint. Bryson challenges E.H. Gombrich's theory that paintings record perception torn out of the real world, and instead maintains that painting is an art of signs circulating within the real world. Focusing on works from antiquity and Byzantium and on paintings by Masaccio, Raphael, Titian, Vermeer, and Manet among others, Bryson explains why classical European painting developed its particular technical features of composition, color, perspective, brushwork, and the manipulation of narrative.
