THE ART OF UNDERSTANDING ART: A NEW PERSPECTIVE. Hugh Moss. Profile Books, London, 2015. 184 pp. with 17 col. ills. 21 x 13 cm. ISBN 9781781256114 In English.
Publisher's description: Have we completely missed the point of the modern western revolution in the arts? Hugh Moss thinks so, and here he presents a refreshingly original and thought-provoking new approach to understanding art. It not only makes sense of western art over the past century or more, but applies equally to the art of any culture at any time, all within one enlightening framework that, well ... works.This new perspective is impossible to ignore - a theory that places art right at the centre of the evolution of human consciousness, as a key driver of the process.Argued with intelligence, panache and wit, The Art of Understanding ArtM provides a delightfully entertaining read that will change the way you think about and look at art, whether you are a collector (or would like to be), a connoisseur, an academic, a student or of course an artist (or would like to be). It is illustrated with intriguing skill, depth and humour by Peter Suart.
