Reviews

"An eloquent and intelligent account of Courbet's work. Rubin manages to find a level which makes the book relevant to present scholarship on Courbet, but also eminently accessible to undergraduate students."-John Kear, Department of the History and Theory of Art, University of Kent at Canterbury

"Enlightening and very readable."-The Artist

"Rubin writes with uncommon lucidity."-Art Review

On the Art & Ideas series

"Art & Ideas has broken new ground in making accessible authoritative views on periods, movements and concepts in art. As a series it represents a real advance in publishing."-Sir Nicholas Serota, Director, Tate London

"The format is wonderful and offers what had long been missing in academic studies: usable manuals for specific themes or periods... I am definitely not alone in welcoming Art & Ideas as a precious set of teaching tools."-Joachim Pissarro, Yale University

"Phaidon's series may prove to be the pick of the crop. It boasts expert but undogmatic texts and a wealth of illustrations."-The Sunday Telegraph
