Hogarth
The Modern Moral Subject, 1697-1732
Paperback      ISBN: 0813516951
In 1971, Ronald Paulson published his monumental two-volume critical biography of William Hogarth, thus establishing his own reputation as a major critic on art and literature of the eighteenth century and gaining recognition for Hogarth as a central figure in British art and culture. In the twenty years since the book's original publication, Paulson's viewpoint on his subject has changed and his knowledge of the period has grown and been refined. In the same two decades, there has been a general growth of knowledge and interest in the eighteenth century in general and in major figures such as Defoe, Fielding, Poe, and Swift. This is the first of three volumes of a fully revised work on Hogarth, which will make the books available at affordable prices to a new and wider audience of readers.
The Philosophical Disenfranchisement of Art
The Philosophical Disenfranchisement of Art
Paperback      ISBN: 0231063652
In this acclaimed work, first published in 1986, world-renowned scholar Arthur C. Danto explored the inextricably linked but often misunderstood relationship between art and philosophy. In light of the book's impact--especially the essay "The End of Art," which dramatically announced that art ended in the 1960s--this enhanced edition includes a foreword by Jonathan Gilmore that discusses how scholarship has changed in response to it. Complete with a new bibliography of work on and influenced by Danto's ideas,The Philosophical Disenfranchisement of Art continues to be of interest to anyone who thinks seriously about art, as well as to philosophers, aestheticians, and art historians.
