Review: The Social History of Art: Volume 4: Naturalism, Impressionism, The Film Age

User Review  - Victoria Caudle - Goodreads

It was a very comprehensive, if jam-packed and fast-paced, overview of modern art history. It had a distinctively communist/socialist slant to the research and not all findings were without bias. All in all, an interesting read. Read full review
