Art in Theory: 1815-1900 An Anthology of Changing Ideas - Charles Harrison, Paul Wood, Jason Gaiger At over 50% done I'm moving onto a different time period. This is invaluable as a reference for understanding the sociopolitical environments in which art is created using primary sources. Indispensable and a great shortcut for those who don't want to read the entirety of various manifestos to understand their influence at the time and effect on subsequent movements. The editors did a brilliant job providing concise abstracts that bring the partial readings into context.
