Summary
Edited by Robert Nelson and Richard Shiff, Critical terms for art history is both an exposition and a demonstration of contested terms from the current art historical vocabulary. In individual essays, scholars examine the history and use of these terms by grounding their discussions in single works of art, reading each work through current debates and methods. This instructive combination of theory and practice allows readers to examine the terms as they are seeing them employed. In its wide representation of contemporary discourse, this book is a comprehensive effort to map historical and theoretical debates over the visual environment
