Toward an Aesthetic Ontology
E. L. McCallum - Author

Beyond Beauty
Beyond Beauty (September 2017)
Federico Vercellone - Author
Sarah De Sanctis - Translator

Traces the decline of beauty as an ideal from early German romanticism to the twentieth century.

The American abstract expressionist painter Barnett Newman famously declared in 1948 that the impulse of modern art is to destroy beauty.

In this book, Federico Vercellone provides an account of th...(Read More)
