Walter Sickert: The Complete Writings on Art

Front Cover
Oxford University Press, 2000 - Art - 699 pages
'The Complete Writings on Art constitutes the most comprehensive selection of Sickert's criticism to date, including much previously unpublished material' -Simon Grant, Times Literary Supplement'a real labour of love... offering a great deal of new insight into Sickert as artist, polemicist and man-about-town. Brilliantly annotated, it's also great fun' -Andy Barclay, Irish TimesWalter Richard Sickert (1860-1942) was a major European artist and critic of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, whose statements on art from the 1880s to the 1930s have been used by artists and writers on art for more than half a century. His criticism is provocative and penetrating, his writing style brilliant and entertaining. The need for a comprehensive edition of Sickert's art-critical writings is overwhelming, and the texts gathered together by Anna Gruetzner Robins, a leading expert on the subject, prove that his contribution as an art-writer was a major one in its own right. The texts are presented chronologically and supported by notes which give the information necessary to situate the figures and events to which Sickert refers.
