1927. This is a book on the criticism, the appreciation and history of art written as one. The author, Professor of Art and Archaeology in Princeton University, and a writer of note, starts us in our study with the academic background of art as far back as 1664 when art was treated as a government function, and leads us through the great periods up to the present, showing us the trends and the tendencies merging into what we call Modern Art. He discusses The Romantic Movement in which we find Burne-Jones, Courbet, Rossetti and others; Official Art of the 19th Century; Landscapes, before, during and after the period of impressionism, including the great works of Corot, Manet, Whistler, Turner and others of importance; The Great Traditionalists, most famous among whom was perhaps Millet; Mural painting, and the Modernist Movements of the 20th Century. Emphasizing the works and lives of painters who are great by world acclaim, the volume includes a gallery of 125 reproductions of paintings. Anything by Mather on art is an essential addition to anyone's library. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing. [via]
