Only 6 left in stock (more on the way). His precision and evocative power is enviable and literary and poetic expression merits attention on its own. His delicacy, taste, accuracy, tolerance makes him an ideal teacher and someone you wish to consult on difficult matters. I already read several of his books and his magazine articles and find communion with his ideas quite pleasurable and profitable.

I came across Steinberg as a reading assignment in an art history course in college, and I was entirely blown away by his essay. He is not only scarily brilliant thinker, but he also writes creatively, beautifully and personally. This is very precious, considering the academic world can make a person's language very dense and stuffy, which I find repugnant at times.
Other Criteria could easily be one of Steinberg's best books. It is indeed, as everyone says, a must-read. And the more I read it, the more I am convinced how courageous Steinberg is. Being an art history major myself, I was told a million times to eliminate the personal voice out of my paper, because it does not sound too "scholarly" and risk being "subjective." However, this kind of objectifying has gone to such a perverse degree that many scholars lose touch with what art is about. Art is, after all, deeply personal. Steinberg embraces just that, while miraculously maintains cool scholarly insights. I cannot say how much I love him. My only regret is that he passed away. Otherwise I would go to whatever university he teaches in.

Stein was one of the few great historians passionate about making the deeper meaning of art understandable, while at the same time putting forth theories that questioned as well as consolidated aesthetic ideas. His was one of the first books that opened my mind as an young artist and I just wanted to make sure I still had a copy in my library to share with my students.

I recommend "Other Criteria to anyone who wants to understand art. It goes beyond any other book in explaining what moves artists and what moves the people who admire the art.
