About this title

Synopsis:

This is a book about how art history is written. It includes detailed analyses of a dozen important texts, and theories about what counts as "interesting" or "experimental" writing on art. There are chapters on texts by Rosalind Krauss, T.J. Clark, Alexander Nemerov, Gilles Deleuze, Helene Cixous, Leo Steinberg, Jean-Louis Schefer, and others; a chapter on institutions that teach experimental writing on art; analyses of rival concepts of the essay; and chapters on the absence of literary criticism in the disciplines of art history, visual studies, art theory, and art criticism.

About the Author:

James Elkins grew up in Ithaca, New York, separated from Cornell University by a quarter-mile of woods once owned by the naturalist Laurence Palmer. He stayed on in Ithaca long enough to get the BA degree (in English and Art History), with summer hitchhiking trips to Alaska, Mexico, Guatemala, the Caribbean, and Columbia. For the last twenty-five years he has lived in Chicago; he got a graduate degree in painting, and then switched to Art History, got another graduate degree, and went on to do the PhD in Art History, which he finished in 1989. (All from the University of Chicago.) Since then he has been teaching in the Department of Art History, Theory, and Criticism, at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
