What do you consider a work of art? Is it a painting, a photograph, a sculpture? Or can it be so much more?

With clear prose, Isaacson discusses abstract versus realism, the links between tribal art and modern sculpture, the use of color, and why some everyday objects and even cities can be considered art. A Common Core Appendix B Text Exemplar Selection, Philip M. Isaacson’s guide will inform as well as inspire. Includes full color photographs.
