Essays in Aesthetics by Jean-Paul Sartre is a collection of five superbly written essays penned in the style of an art historian or art critic, worlds away from academic writing, containing no references to other aestheticians and only several footnotes for the purpose of historical exactitude. There is one long essay in four parts on the 15th century renaissance painter Jacopo Tintoretto, two essays on Alberto Giacometti, one on Robert Lapoujade, and one on Alexander Calder.

درمورد زیبایی شناسی نبود اصلن!
درباره نقد و تاریخ و فلسفه چنتا هنرمند بود
تینتورتو، جاکومتی، لاپوجاد و کالدر.
بعضی قسمتهاش هم خوب بود.

“Eğri bir dalı ağaçtan çekip alabilirim, fakat kaldırılmış bir kolu ya da inançla sıkılmış bir yumruğu asla ayrı düşünemem.”

Excellent. A great example of the phenomenological essay on art. Contextual, political, historical, and sensitive. Wish there was more of it!
