THE ART OF WRITING ABOUT ART serves as a quick reference for students writing various types of essays, research papers, exhibition reviews, and even examinations. The premise of the book is that students in all disciplines, t just English, should be required to write well and that their instructors should hold these writing assignments to high standards. THE ART OF WRITING ABOUT ART t only emphasizes skills in college-level composition, but also in verbalizing the experience of art -- the historical, social, ecomic, and political forces that shape art and artists; art theory; and the interplay between artist and viewer.
