Believing Is Seeing : Creating the Culture of Art by Mary Anne Staniszewski. Some underlining on the pages but otherwise in excellent condition. Porch pick up in Banning Lewis Ranch.

This learned and deliciously subversive book gives us a new way of seeing our artistic heritage. Believing Is Seeing is a work of multicultural scope and glittering intelligence that bridges the gulf between classical Japanese painting and the films of Spike Lee, between high theory and pop culture. Probing beyond the rhetorical surface of standard art histories and drawing on a panoramic array of illustrative material, Mary Anne Staniszewski throws a fresh light on individual works and the often mystifying criteria by which they are valued.
