Summary
"Award-winning museum director and controversial art critic Julian Spalding helps us consider our relationship with the arts and makes us aware that seening is a wondeful gift." "He shows us how mankind's early appreciation of the sun and moon, the rhythms and forces of nature, the cycle of birth and death is reflected in art, and draws striking parallels between seemingly different eras and peoples. Reaching across continents and cultures to study our earliest and latest creations, Spalding shows that what has changed dramatically throughout history is our way of seeing ourselves within the world."--BOOK JACKET
