Seven Discourses on Art edition by Sir Joshua Reynolds Henry Morley Arts Photography eBooks

About arts education--why are so many art students more than girls at 16 and less than women at 30? It is hard to believe for 250 years art teachers have been struggling with that. Actually, Reynolds wrote of it as boys to men, not girls to women, so in the years since 1769, some things have changed.
That said, if you want historical perspective on the problem of creating art, and of teaching artists, this is a wonderful taste of it. It is written in the style of the times, and reflects the values, assumptions, beliefs and so on of the era (starting with the fawning gratitude for royal patronage--hard for this American to believe that the guy Reynolds is thanking so effusively for founding the Royal Academy is the same odious tyrant whose injustices prompted the American Revolution. But no matter).
Reynolds discourses have frequently been boiled down to a single claim--the established rules are not fetters for genius, but only for weaker talents. But there is a great deal more here. Part of what makes it so fascinating is that his complacent acceptance of the tastes of his times challenges our own implicit assumptions about our own era's conventions, while at at the same time his observations about art instruction and the development of artists continue to ring true (who can dispute, in an era lamenting the 'de-skilling' of art, that for the representational artist, the basics of drafting, color and composition are the essential fundamentals.
In the last half century the visual arts have lost some of their focus and their definition has loosened considerably. Reynolds ('sir sloshua' to the pre-Raphaelites) obviously has nothing to say about abstract expressionism or much of contemporary art--video, performance, installations, etc. If that's what you're looking for, these prize day speeches from the late 18th century won't offer you much. But if your interests are more focused--and lie in drawing and painting--or less focused--and concern arts education or issues in cultural transmission--it's pretty interesting summer reading.

Outstanding insight into the thinking behind the founder of Britain's Royal Academy. Certainly great value for the price! )
