Book – Art and Culture, by the venerable Clement Greenberg. Purchased second hand at the Strand Book store in New York city a few yellow moons ago.
It’s not quite fair to render this as obsolete is it. It’s been about five years since I taught at university (as a sessional) so I can’t say if this book is still taught or not. In fact I couldn’t say it was taught when I was teaching as art history wasn’t my field. I’m sure some of the concepts are resurrected, as so much of that era has been recycled.

My status: Pre-posting this. I am probably on a plane right now hopefully enjoying the view.
