Book summary

This unique book introduces the skills needed to describe and interpret art through a step-by-step approach to writing, from choosing a work to preparing the final essay. Beginning with the important visual elements that must be covered when writing about any work of art, the book provides numerous samples that use various approaches. It includes one complete model essay and four draft samples as well as a concise guide to usage and style. The third edition of Writing About Art has been revised to include a discussion of on-line research as a means of accessing information such as images, discussions of artistŐs work, bibliographies, interviews, and more from museum collections around the world. In addition, it features a new section on citing on-line sources. The book reflects an increased emphasis on writing about art in its cultural and social context, including expanded treatments of feminist and multi-cultural approaches to writing about art. It also includes expanded coverage of alternative media including photography, video and computer environments. An essential reference for every professional writer. [via]
