What do we mean when we call a work of art `beautiful'? How do perceptions of beauty change with the passage of time? In Beauty and Art, Elizabeth Prettejohn explores these crucial questions, showing the vital relationship between our changing notions of beauty and aesthetics, and the creation of art. In this new edition to the Oxford History of Art series, she charts the story of western art, from eighteenth-century Germany to the late 20th century, from Kauffman to Whistler, Ingres to Rossetti, Cezanne to Jackson Pollock.
