Wilenksi's classic book on different ways of looking at and studying art "distinguishes...between the freedom of approach open to the lay spectator and the obligations binding on the professional student. He shows where and how the functions of art historians, stylistic experts, aestheticians, art critics and others differ. And he insists upon the sudy of contemporary production as the principal key to an understanding of the records and survivals of the past."--From the dw. Dust jacket present. First Edition.
