Summary Surveying the art of 5 decades, from 1867 to 1917, this book follows the broad and diverse ways that artists and their public learnt to see and to judge works of art abstractly. It argues that abstraction arose directly from a tradition of speculation about the nature of art and of aesthetic experience.
