AESTHETIC REALISM: WE HAVE BEEN THERE—Six Artists on the Siegel Theory of Opposites
Essays on art, acting, photography. Illus.
by Chaim Koppelman, Anne Fielding, et al.
“The Siegel Theory of Opposites relates life to art and is basically a criterion for all branches of aesthetics. In painting, for example, it is an investigation of the genesis of a canvas, its manner of execution, and its value as a work of art. Siegel’s theory operates equally well in drama, poetry, photography, and printmaking, as the nine short essays making up this book illustrate. Two important writings of Siegel, ‘Is Beauty the Making One of Opposites?’ and ‘Art as Life,’ are appended. All this adds up to an interesting little volume which can be warmly recommended for all art collections.” —Library Journal
