The Art of Understanding Art: A new perspective by Hugh Moss

What is art? How do you judge it - by price, artist, technique, emotional response? How did artists such as Duchamp and Hirst change things? And what can we learn from the Chinese about appreciating art - and music?

In this delightfully readable book, art expert and artist Hugh Moss persuasively presents a controversial new theory of art that should help everyone to enjoy art more, and feel more confident in their judgements about it. He shows that much accepted thinking about art is the result of intellectual tyranny. To fully appreciate a work of art, he argues, we need to combine intellect and reason with the transcendental side of consciousness. Not easy, admittedly - but if you can reach your own enlightened view, immensely rewarding.

Written with a light touch, practical, intelligent, provocative, seasoned with irreverence and wit, and wonderfully illustrated by Peter Suart, this is a book that anyone interested in art will find stimulating.
