Art and Culture: Critical Essays by Clement GreenbergAs far as art criticism goes this is the good stuff, but I have been gradually lowering my expectations of what art criticism can accomplish. Greenberg is the most well known and influential American art critic of the 20th century, as David Sylvester was in the UK. I enjoy reading both of them but Ive gradually come to realise that I dont believve art criticism is capable of really illuminating art in the way that literary criticsm or music criticism can illuminate. Maybe the medium of words just cant adequately engage with a visual medium.

I have read the first essay so far. Whilst I can see immediately he was part of the intellectual revolution that the ideologies of Communism and Fascism warred over in Europe, he was very perceptive about kitsch. I don't think he would get away today with saying that the levels of art in a culture are divided between the bourgeois and the proletariat but he makes some insightful comments about imitation and the abstract. Definitely worth reading if you are into art history or interested in art. Here at Walmart. Your email address will never be sold or distributed to a third party for any reason.
