Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0300126131, Paperback)

Now available in paperback

A major art historian reflects on a great tradition of European painting.

 

"The Vexations of Art is an engrossing, passionate attempt to re-engage with painting as a mode of thought at a time when 'it is not clear in what form the resource of painting—for surely painting has been a singular resource of the greater European culture—will continue."—Jackie Wullschlager, Financial Times

 

"[A] fascinating book that will surely generate discussion for some time to come."—Mindy Nancarrow, Renaissance Quarterly
