Abstract:

"In his reviews of major exhibitions and gallery shows, Danto reflects on the work of past masters (Vermeer, Tiepolo), the great painters of the modern period (Dali, de Kooning, Kline, Rothko, and Johns), and the pluralistic descendants of Andy Warhol who dominate the New York art scene today. Nietzsche, he points out, published an essay called "How to Philosophize with a Hammer"; Danto's own review essays are lessons in how to criticize with a feather, so fine and considerate are his judgments of artists and of the nature of art in general."--BOOK JACKET.
