    I’ve been amazed by the simplicity and elegance of this book. And also I was amazed with the fact that Tan wasn’t actually art historian, he was philosopher. If you interested in things like understanding the peace of art, analyzing it by details and whole picture - this is the really good book for beginning of your art-history-geek life. Tan developed concept of understanding the art through history circumstances of its creation and characters in it. This concept is now used on the best art his I’ve been amazed by the simplicity and elegance of this book.

Tan developed concept of understanding the art through history circumstances of its creation and characters in it. This concept is now used on the best art history faculties all over the world. I can say that this book will open your mind towards the art pieces. You’ll begin to look on paintings differently, even if it’s a painting that was hanging on the wall of your living room for 20 years. Tan also talks about literature and characters that make writing a masterpiece. Even if you are not a writer this lecture will be quite useful and interesting for you as a reader.

    It’s not a boring book ( maybe the title sounds so) at all! It’s really an interesting, exciting, and catching book. Tells about philosophy, history, geography, psychology, and art. What art represents, how to judge a good piece of art. Really obsessed with the method author introduced. Art is to show the elements, and the relation between the elements, in a more exaggerated way. Whether it’s a good piece or not, depends on the elements the artist chooses (whether it’s good elements) and the way t It’s not a boring book ( maybe the title sounds so) at all!

    希望这是在逛卢浮宫前看到的书…… 什么样的水土养育什么样的人 创造什么样的文化产生什么样的作品。外加历史 政治 很多东西都有些必然。有点意思。 BTW看完喜欢希腊了 以后跟对象儿去(˶‾᷄ ⁻̫ ‾᷅˵)
