Nice plates.
This book is an accurate example of everything I hate about the field of Art History. It's hardly written in English, it's so dense. Art criticism is not rocket science, and shouldn't be as impenetrable. The book is all description with hardly any analysis- anyone with eyes doesn't need most of the words in the book. Ugh. At least the pictures are good.

A good primer for those interested in Cubism, but I can honestly say I still just don't get it!

I read this book for my National History Day project. It was very useful, but not something I would suggest to pick up if you're looking for a good read.
