A Short Guide to Writing About Art Second Edition Author:Sylvan Barnet "Addressed primarily to students in art history courses, this book may well be the answer to a prayer of their teachers. there is much sense in what the author has to say on good writing, especially as he supports it with well-chosen samplings from the works of some of the finest stylists of the field.
