Great history but not much to learn here.28 mai 2013
- Publié sur Amazon.com
I hoped this would explain the techniques of each artistic approach but it does not. No pictures were included to illustrate the concepts and the descriptions were not helpful for such an education.
Instead these are the mean, and frequently pro-communist ramblings, of painters, architects, and others, most of whom are very poor writers. After 148 pages of careful reading I don't believe that it is worth my precious time to read more.
As a history reporting, the book is a 5 star and an important contribution showing what "little people" many artists are as they think only of themselves and blast others. Of course you can get into the spirit of "the manifesto" and disregard the harshness but when you read how they lived their personal lives the same way politically and personally it is hard to disregard their barbarian tendencies.
I guess I must admit that I learned something but it embarrasses me to be considered an artist myself.
