Product description

The battle for realism
Art historian James Hyman takes a fresh look at the crucial years after the Second World War when attempts were made to revive European culture and debates about the future of art were fierce. The author proposes that realism in Europe during the early Cold War years occupied a radical vanguard position and stood in opposition to the competing claims made for American Abstract Expressionism.
He examines two distinct visions of realism - social realism and Modernist realism - and explores their political implications and ideological significance.
This copy is in immaculate condition and bears the author's signature.
