Titles by This Author

The task of writing, in the vernacular, on the nature of the artistic process and the operations of criticism is an ambitious one—Professor Greene, in this highly readable, informal discourse on art criticism successfully achieves this goal. He treats a broad range of critical ideas, avoiding as much as possible unnecessary complications and artificial language often found in books on criticism. In a graceful, conversational style he discusses how art "works," what to look for, and why.
