Book Description and Condition

Book description and condition

The core of Michael O'Tooles study is the contention that semiotics can assist in the search for a language through which our perceptions of a work of art can be shared. He analyses in detail a number of major works to show how the semiotic approach relates a work's immediate impact to other aspects of our response to it: to the scene portrayed, to the social, intellectual and economic world within which the artist and patrons worked, and to our own world. It

further provides ways of talking about and interrelating aspects of composition, technique and the material qualities of the work. The volume is essential reading for students of the visual arts, of semiotics and cultural studies, as well as for art curators, and those teaching art appreciation and art design. 235 x 157mm., pp. xiii, 4, 295, black & white and colour plates, notes, bibliography, indexes - Names and Subject. Hard cover in dust jacket. Contents, SIGNED by MICHAEL O'YOOLE on Title page ('with best wishes, Michael O'Toole'), no other inscriptions; dust jacket, medium rubbing top/bottom spine, medium 'rubbed' on back (colour panel).
