Description

In this book the noted art critic has tried to develop the complete theory and history of visual art, and deals with a broad range of topics ranging from 'What is Art?' to 'The Future of art'.

In this book the noted British art critic, Clive Bell, has tried to develop the complete theory of visual art. He has advanced a hypothesis by reference to which the history of art from Paleolithic days to the present becomes intelligible. Anyone who is curious to discover why we call a Persian carpet or a fresco by Piero della Francesco a work of art, will find an answer here. Bell has tried to make a generalization about the nature of art that is at once true, coherent and comprehensible. He has indicated clearly what is essential in a work of art.

From chapters on Aesthetics and Post-Impressionism to chapters on art and its relation with religion, history and ethics, this book deals with a broad range of topics ranging from ‘What is Art?’ to ‘The Future’ of art.
