Let's see: writings on art from the New Yorker
Thames & Hudson, 2008/04/29 - 256 ページ
Distinguished critic at The New Yorker since 1998, Peter Schjeldahl has been described as America's most influential writer on art. Blessed with an unerring eye, he tackles a myriad of subjects with wit, poetry, and perspicacity, examining and questioning the art before him while reveling in the power and beauty of language. His writing springs from a desire to be understood by all readers, and a determination to help them engage with art of every kind.
Covering subjects drawn from a broad canvas of the history of art-from ancient Greece, Mexico, and Byzantium, through Raphael, Rubens, and Rembrandt, to Bruce Nauman, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and John Currin-the writings collected here seek out with precision and economy the essence of the individual artist or work under discussion, but they never lose sight of the bigger picture: What is beauty? What does it mean to be an American artist? What can the art we produce and admire tell us about ourselves?
With an imaginative introduction-twenty questions, each one posed to Schjeldahl by a different artist or writer-this collection will appeal to anyone who considers the experience of art, and of writing on art, an invitation to a voyage.

Most of these articles I've already read at one time or another. Schjeldahl, however, is one of my favorite critics at The New Yorker: he's right up there with Wood, Lane, and Acocella. I love his ... レビュー全文を読む
