More than 4 weeks availability
Writing with all the brilliance, authority and pungent wit that have distinguished his art criticism for Time magazine and his greatly acclaimed study of modern art, The Shock of the New, Robert Hughes now addresses his largest subject: the history of art in America. The intense relationship between the American people and their surroundings has been the source of a rich artistic tradition. American Visions is a consistently revealing demonstration of the many ways in which artists have expressed this pervasive connection. In nine eloquent chapters, which span the whole range of events, movements and personalities of more than three centuries, Robert Hughes shows us the myriad associations between the unique society that is America and the art it has produced.
Robert Hughes was born in Australia in 1938. Since 1970 he has lived and worked in the United States, where he has been Time magazine's art critic for more than twenty-five years. He is the recipient of a number of awards and prizes for his work, including one from the American Academy of Arts and Letters and the Age Book of the Year Award for The Fatal Shore. Robert Hughes died in August 2012.
