Summer Reading


Many, I am sure, will want to be reading "classics" this summer. Here are a few Art classics:

Camera Lucida, Roland Barthes, 770.1 B285

Other Criteria, Leo Steinberg, 709.04 S819

Ways of Seeing, John Berger 759.94 W359 (hmm... that call number seems a little odd, but you should refer to it until I, or one of the catalogers, say otherwise.)

On Photography, Susan Sontag, 770.1 S699

Leonardo Da Vinci, Kenneth Clark, 759.5 C582zc3

Lives of the Painters, Sculptors and Architects, Giorgio Vasari 709.2245 V334

Studies in Iconology, Erwin Panofsky, 709.3 P29s3

On Painting, Leon Battista Alberti, 750 A334

The Autobiography of Benvenuto Cellini, Benvenuto Cellini, 92 C393A96

This is by no means exhaustive, but should be enough to get you started.
