I devoured it. Art and Ideas. Someday I will go back and read it again slowly. By structuring it thematically instead of chronologically, I could see how the fascinations, debates and uncomfortable contradictions are still with us even if we express them differently now. Plus, Phaidon. So the book itself is beautiful.
The landscape portion introducing Friedrich, Turner and Constable was fascinating, but after the midway point it seems to stray too far in the exposition....
The best book on Romanticism I've ever read ... Bar none! If you want a great primer for the period in general, this is the one to read.
Was interesting, but didn't hold my attention further than the halfway point. Sometimes the history of artists seems too much like gossip.
