"Art in Theory. 1815-1900. An Anthology of Changing Ideas" provides the most wide-ranging and comprehensive collection of documents ever assembled on nineteenth-century theories of art.

  • Features 260 texts, including writings by artists, critics, philosophers and literary figures, each with its own introduction;
  • Key themes and topics include: Romanticism, genius and originality, responses to nature, Realism and Naturalism, landscape painting, debates over Impressionism, expression and colour, cultural criticism, the rise of photography, and Symbolism;
  • Each section is prefaced by an essay that situates the ideas of the period in their historical context, and relates theoretical concerns and debates to developments in the practice of art;
  • Provides students and teachers with a wide range of documentary material, and an extensive bibliography, for informed and up-to-date study.

    Clear organization, considerable editorial content, and an unequalled editorial team combine to make this an indispensable introduction for anyone interested in the wider cultural debates of the nineteenth century and in the development of modern aesthetic theories.
