s not available grrrWell it s a game anyone can play I found M Barzun to be a very stimulating companion Really managed to crystallize a bunchf scattered ideas swirling around in my head about why art is so fucked up and why people are so fucked up too I guess The ideas in this short book are uite forcef. The National Gallery in 1973 Mr Barzun examines art as religion as destroyer as redeemer and in relation to what he calls its temper science but never forgets the basic essential As he says the last word n ar. I have to begin this review by saying I am a huge fan f Jacues Barzun After being introduced to him through reading Dawn Hidden Witness (Return to Ravesville of Decadence when it was published I have read as manyf his books as I can find He has an acute sense A Passionate Heart/To Kiss A Count/The Runaway Countess of culture and history and is a straight forward writer I was not disappointed in this book There are six chapters that were each a lecture given as partf the A W Mellon Lectures in the Fine Arts Barzun has insights into the development The Earl and the Governess of art that seem rightn I teach an mnibus class that art and I learned so much by reading this book that I can t wait to share in class I do wonder what further insights Barzun has about art since 30 plus years have passed since he wrote it in 1973 If you are i The book includes a number f lectures by Mr Barzun to the National Galery London in which he shares his ideas about art It is an intellectual voyage with lots شرح التعرف لمذهب التصوف -پنج مجلد of statements toverthinkThe author cites Ruskin that a great nation produces great art After all all else passes but art alone endures It can Shape The Minds And Emotions the minds and emotions men as well as enlarge their imagination Great art thrills and helps to learn about Steelhands (Havemercy, oneself thether and the world Next to that art cannot be divorced from moral and social significance Art is not neutral and will thrive when there is a unity cannot be divorced from moral and social significance Art is not neutral and will thrive when there is a unity state and religion since the latter helps emotions and symbols to converge Art shows direction and embodies the divine It is the gateway to the spirit the enlargement Words of Life of nature To prove his point Barzun uotes Hegel Berlioz and Goethe who all confirm the interconnectivity between nature religion and artSince the agef science protestantism and renaissance the artist no longer preaches accepted morality but claims its Ten Orange Pumpkins own higher morality Art is no longer instrumental and illustrative to religion Ruskin and Newman believe that religion canppose materialism positivism and the reduction Amarcord of human life But Nietzsche s transvaluationf values encouraged like Shaw and Ibsen to break with tradition Barzun refers to an all male cast f the play Trojan Women Whereas the Romantics tried to imitate high art ther art movements simply led to decadence Symbolism removes nature is non American General objective and reductive Naturalism Zola Courbet isbscene and urges rather to bruise than to bring catharsis Functionalist architecture reduces buildings and houses to being functional whereas architecture is typically multifunctional TS Eliott Wishes and Worries once said that art is a simplificationf life into something rich and strange According to Barzun minimal art is then just a short circuit He sees similarities between modern art and science as both claim to be universal and eternal by using statistical mathematical and abstract methods Eg poetry has turned into a form The Downs Syndrome Handbook of structure but is no longer about literature and emotions The standard is no longer the link to mankindr to imitate nature No need to say that Mr Barzun regrets this trend in art I have trouble digesting art criticism Maybe some Club Dead (Sookie Stackhouse, of the things talked about in this book will sink in and inform me By the time that happens in the future I will be unable to say whetherr not they came from this book When All Hell Breaks Loose or fromther mysterious sources An excellent concise brilliant analysis Hell Fire (Corine Solomon, of how art has replaced religion in the last century I now understand why so muchf modern art I find bewildering depressing and Friscos Kid (Tall, Dark Dangerous, offensive The arrogancef the cult SOG of art those in the know is also revealed for what it is

defined art in the past couple Alien Diplomacy (Katherine Kitty Katt, of centuries andn what we ve expected from art redemption social change social definition Barzun is speaking to a general audience and the collected essays here Togo originally given as lectures in the mis 1970s are presented without illustrations so there s a feeling heref being left without concrete examples but Barzun s knowledge Bikini of art history is sweeping and his ability to relate changes in how art is defined and used to changes in technology and itswn social standing is unmatched Moderately difficult read but very much a classic This author is clear and concise about how we use and abuse art and how art uses and abuses us at times Barzun is a comprehensive historian with years Better of experience in studying the zeitgeistf societies In reading this book I discovered my Slakes Limbo own definitionf art which will help me to understand what I like and do not like I will read again and again I found my notes to this book in a box in the loft part All Clear (All Clear, of what will become known as The Bryant Papers in a few decades I m sure The.
