"...an entertaining and thought- provoking introduction to the world of art...Highly recommended."--Journal of Art and Society

“Hand this book to anyone who says, “I don’t get art.” When they read this, they will get art from the first scratch on a cave wall to the latest disturbance in the habitual look of things...deeply researched, clearly argued, and delightfully written.”--Andrei Codrescu, author of “No Time Like Now: New Poems” (Pitt Poetry Series, 2019)

"This book will drive you to see art, buy art—even make art."--Sally Koslow, author, Another Side of Paradise
