by Leonard Diepeveen and Timothy Van Laar. This short and very readable book helps the intelligent but uninitiated reader come to terms with works of art that can be confusing, or even intimidating. Art can be daunting if it comes from a culture different from our own, is the work of "outsider" artists, or - as with most contemporary art - is deliberately obscure, or "difficult," in some way.

However, these unarticulated, unconscious processes are totally necessary for us to see Self-portrait at the Easel as a work of art. Many artworks within an individual viewer's own culture function in this straightforward way: the basic levels of interpretation are done silently and are unrecognized. Because they are done silently, they also seem effortless, unproblematic.

This short and very readable book helps the intelligent but uninitiated reader come to terms with works of art that can be confusing, or even intimidating. Art can be daunting if it comes from a culture different from our own, is the work of "outsider" artists, or -- as with most contemporary art -- is deliberately obscure, or "difficult," in some way. The authors don't attempt to supply pat answers to the questions "is this art?" and "what does this mean?" but they help the readers to frame additional questions that can lead them to their own better understandings of these objects.
I definitely will assign this book in my course on writing and critical thinking for art history majors. This summer term, I also plan to experiment with using it as a recommended, supplemental text in my art history survey.
