This invaluable introduction to the critical theories used in analysing art has been updated to reflect recent scholarship in contemporary art and has been broken down into smaller sections for greater clarity and accessibility. The book begins with a revised discussion of the difference between method and theory. The following chapters apply the varying approaches to works of art, and the book ends with a new conclusion that focuses on the way the study of art is informed by theory.
