About this book

Cynthia Freeland explains why innovation and controversy are valued in the arts, weaving together philosophy, art theory, and many engrossing examples. She discusses blood, beauty, culture, money, sex, web sites, and research on the brain's role in perceiving art. This clear, lively book will engage the public, introductory students, and teachers in the arts. 'a useful crib' -Guardian 'a pacy and readable introduction to art history' -Independent on Sunday 'admirable for its scope, compactness and exceptional clarity. Reader-friendly and thought-provoking' -The Independent
