Seventy-five of Peter Schjeldahl's engaging pieces on art from The New Yorker, published together for the first time.

Distinguished critic at The New Yorker since 1998, Peter Schjeldahl has been described as America's most influential writer on art. Blessed with an unerring eye, he tackles a myriad of subjects with wit, poetry, and perspicacity, examining and questioning the art before him while reveling in the power and beauty of language. His writing springs from a desire to be understood by all readers, and a determination to help them engage with art of every kind.

Covering subjects drawn from a broad canvas of the history of art?from ancient Greece, Mexico, and Byzantium, through Raphael, Rubens, and Rembrandt, to Bruce Nauman, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and John Currin?the writings collected here seek out with precision and economy the essence of the individual artist or work under discussion, but they never lose sight of the bigger picture: What is beauty? What does it mean to be an American artist? What can the art we produce and admire tell us about ourselves?

With an imaginative introduction?twenty questions, each one posed to Schjeldahl by a different artist or writer?this collection will appeal to anyone who considers the experience of art, and of writing on art, an invitation to a voyage.

Coverage includes:
     ? large-scale exhibitions at leading institutions around the world
     ? shows at private galleries
     ? profiles of prominent members of the art world
     ? personal accounts of time spent with artists
     ? the influences of museum spaces on our experience of art

Über den Autor: Peter Schjeldahl is the author of numerous books of poems and criticism and has taught at Harvard University. He lives in New York.
