Art Lovers' Guide: New York

$4.98
The best guidebook for those who want to experience the finest art in New York. The first fully illustrated guide to the collections of New York's Museums and Galleries that actually works the way people like to see art. Rather than taking the old fashioned approach of listing the city's various museums and then describing highlights, this book focuses on the art. Arranged chronologically from ancient art through today, the book is part guide and part art history - each section is devoted to a certain period, and then highlighted where the best works of that period are to be found. Rather than spending an entire day at the Metropolitan Museum with its overwhelming collections, this book allows you to choose one period, style or individual artist and trace a tour through the city finding all the relevant masterpieces - museum by museum, gallery by gallery. This truly innovative organization mimics the way most people actually prefer viewing art and will make this guide the must have for any art lover - whether you are a beginner or a longtime connoisseur. This is the first city guide book to focus solely on those who travel to see great art - both classic and contemporary. The book is organized roughly chronologically into 25 chapters sorted into three sections - Early Art (ancient Egyptian, classical antiquity, medieval art), the Western Tradition (Northern and Southern Renaissance, Golden Age of Dutch Painting, Realism, Romanticism, etc.), and Modern Art (Impressionism, Fauvism, Expressionism and up to today's contemporary scene). A fourth section provides references including maps, indices of museums and artists, and other helpful suggestions for navigating the city and finding the art masterpieces of you seek.

Better Living Through Criticism

product image
$17.00

The New York Times film critic shows why we need criticism now more than ever

Few could explain, let alone seek out, a career in criticism. Yet what A.O. Scott shows in Better Living Through Criticism is that we are, in fact, all critics: because critical thinking informs almost every aspect of artistic creation, of civil action, of interpersonal life. With penetrating insight and warm humor, Scott shows that while individual critics--himself included--can make mistakes and find flaws where they shouldn't, criticism as a discipline is one of the noblest, most creative, and urgent activities of modern existence.

Using his own film criticism as a starting point--everything from his infamous dismissal of the international blockbuster The Avengers to his intense affection for Pixar's animated Ratatouille--Scott expands outward, easily guiding readers through the complexities of Rilke and Shelley, the origins of Chuck Berry and the Rolling Stones, the power of Marina Abramovich and 'Ode on a Grecian Urn.' Drawing on the long tradition of criticism from Aristotle to Susan Sontag, Scott shows that real criticism was and always will be the breath of fresh air that allows true creativity to thrive. "The time for criticism is always now," Scott explains, "because the imperative to think clearly, to insist on the necessary balance of reason and passion, never goes away."
