Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
Dome pi tty definite concI uslonB as ta the natnrc of that ait and of the problems involved in il some decided opinions as to what that art has been, is, and shonld be. These oplnkma I have tried, however tmpcrfectljr, to exemplify in my wotli and to incnlcate in my teaching. They have also, I nevitably, colored what I have written. But what I have written has, hitherto, been casual and occasional a discnssion of this or that master, a cnttdsm of this oi thit paiticular work of ait and the bases of my criticism, the fondamental ideas on which it is founded, have had, for the most part, to be taken for granted, or to be cursorily snd Incompletely expressed. These papers have, moreover, been written at long I ntervals, and for different purpoaes, and could hardly be entirely consistent with each other. Something like a general point of view could, perhaps, be I nferted from them, and something like a consistent body of doctrine made out, by the exercise of sufficient care and sufB cient I ntelligence; but such careful and intelligent consideration as would be necessary could hardly be expected of many readers.

Kenyon Cox wrote for a number of magazines and his writing was periodically collected into books of essays. This particular one - now reprinted and thus easily available - originated as the Scammon Lectures at the Art Institute of Chicago. The Scammon Lectures were a prestigious series of talks and after the series was completed each season, Charles Scribner's Sons published the lecturer's notes, their text, in book form. In these essays, Cox defends traditional, representational painting against the new forms of painting, which rejected the classical approach entirely. He made his case for timeless values - and Cox was one of the major figures of what has become known as "The American Renaissance" - and one doesn't have to always agree with him to learn from his essays, from his full throated defense of his point of view. These essays appeared just two years before the Armory Show and so they will assist any artist or student of art history in understanding just what all the fuss was about.
