Overall excellent condition! ; The vast output of art criticism in our time has created invarious quarters the need for major historical synthesis covering the arts of all periods and countries - a kind of "corpus," both critical and documentary, which, within the framework of a single design and method, would seize the decisive factors and the most significant elements of that particular activity of the human mind which is mirrored in an infinite variety of art cultures. Although works attempting broad and comprehensive treatment have previously been published, they do not appear to have met this need fully, in some cases because of a too-subjectice approach and in others because they were devoted to purely documentary or biographical content. ; Encyclopedia of World Art Volumes 1 to 16 Series; Vol. 1/16/2020; 9" x 13"
