's review

it was amazing

An underappreciated gem, that one starts dreaming of reading for the second time while still in the middle of the book. Erudite doesn't begin to describe it: Malraux deconstructs art history and glues it back together in a way that exposes new angles of settled art theory concepts under everyone's noses. The book connects the dots I never knew could be connected and gives a philosophical and humanistic perspective to the way seeing affects one's thinking. The art history will never seem lineal again after reading this piece of art philosophy, which, in a truly futuristic way gains back it's relevance in the digital era.

P.S. I especially recommend it to those who are already familiar with writings by Walter Benjamin or John Berger on how photography and film affect the meaning of the original masterpiece.
