    I quit because of two reasons. The first is that I don't know squat about art. The second is this book is so dry. 100 pages in and I cannot do any more. I quit because of two reasons.

    I'm just starting this today 10/04/2009....it's a big mother, but I've wanted to read some of Malraux for some time. I'm just starting this today 10/04/2009....it's a big mother, but I've wanted to read some of Malraux for some time.

    I read one-third of this book. There were things I really liked but the translation made it difficult to get through. I gave up.

    Certainly the best book on art I have ever read for many reasons. Yes, it's long (in my edition over 640 pages) and yes, it's extremely probing and demands concentration and curiosity for every kind of art, BUT if you get through it, you'll not only know a lot about art and the way art affects us and our society, but you will be changed. Yet the main reason I love this book (that took 16 years to write) is that Malraux includes art from every part of the world. It is an exhilarating journey tha Certainly the best book on art I have ever read for many reasons.

Yet the main reason I love this book (that took 16 years to write) is that Malraux includes art from every part of the world. It is an exhilarating journey that's worth the effort.I am especially fond of part III, The Creative Process. Part I is so good it was published separately. I don't always agree with Malraux, but he sure gets you thinking. This book, along with Metamorphosis of the Gods, are perhaps the greatest studies of art ever written (in my opinion, of course). There should be courses devoted to Malraux's views of art in the English speaking world.

    I was once asked if I was chosen to speak to aliens and convince them NOT to obliterate earth, what would I say. I'd mention the arts is one redeeming attribute to us as a whole. This huge book pretty much backs me up on my assessment. It is a heavy book to read but a lot of it is black and white photos of art. Every student or lover of art should get a chance and read this piece. I was once asked if I was chosen to speak to aliens and convince them NOT to obliterate earth, what would I say.

    I read this some years ago. I no longer have a fresh memory of it other than to say I loved it.
