Abstract:

Great art affects people in different ways. Some of us are moved to tears by it; some of us are struck speechless. Such responses are, to a certain extent, natural human reactions to the extremes of experience, be they beauty, truth or anguish. But responding to art is also an acquired sensitivity, based on exposure and expanded knowledge. The purpose of this book, then, is to expose the reader to a wide range of great art works, beautifully reproduced, and to provide information that will increase one's awareness and responsiveness to what is seen.
