I've used this book to write papers, it's really good, especially for those who know nothing about art.

My rating assumes the reader is interested in this material. Written by a well qualified professor for English majors who branch out into reviewing art, many examples are offered. Do not miss the final illustration, Hans Namuth's photo of Jackson Pollock painting (1951). Index.
