Product Description
Product Details

Promotional Information

Krauss's essays, for their erudition, for their interpretations (particularly of artists whose work we thought we knew well), and for their siting of the art within the fullest possible range of discourses, stand as paradigmatic models for contemporary criticism." -- J. T. Paoletti, Wesleyan University
