Abstract:

"There has never been a book that even remotely resembles this bold and cheeky introduction to the art world's most interesting enigmas. As the author, Michael Napoliello Jr. scratches his head out loud trying to decipher the mysteries and the truths that are the great works of art, he confesses, "Despite being a gallery owner and life long lover of art, I'm still not sure what many of the answers are." Among the many highly opinionated things Mr. Napoliello does reveal in this labor of love, is that "some art dealers, academics, out of touch institutions, spineless critics, celebrity-obsessed curators and career-obsessed artists can and do drain the spirit and wonder from the world of art."" "This then, is an acerbic, often hilarious, but always honest look at the esoteric world of art from the Renaissance to abstract, and even into the future. Mr. Napoliello has compiled his opinions and comments into three neat categories: Ideas, History and Today. You may disagree with what he has to say, whole-heartedly agree, or wind up scratching your own head at some of his revelations. 101 Things I Don't Know About Art far exceeds the two cardinal rules of good publishing: it entertains and it informs. You will thoroughly enjoy An Opinionated Introduction to the Fine Arts on many levels. Book jacket."--Jacket.
