Leo Steinberg's classic "Other Criteria" comprises eighteen essays on topics ranging from "Contemporary Art and the Plight of Its Public" and the "flatbed picture plane" to reflections on Picasso, Rauschenberg, Rodin, de Kooning, Pollock, Guston, and Jasper Johns. The latter, which Francine du Plessix Gray called "a tour de force of critical method," is widely regarded as the most eye-opening analysis of the Johns's work ever written. This edition includes a new preface and a handful of additional illustrations. "The art book of the year, if not of the decade and possibly of the century. . . .The significance of this volume lies not so much in the quality of its insights--although the quality is very high and the insights are important--as in the richness, precision, and elegance of its style. . . . A meeting with the mind of Leo Steinberg is one of the most enlightening experiences that contemporary criticism affords." --Alfred Frankenstein, "Art News " "Not only one of the most lucid and independent minds among art critics, but a profound one."--Robert Motherwell

Art historian Leo Steinberg is Benjamin Franklin Professor Emeritus at the University of Pennsylvania. His books include Other Criteria: Confrontations with Twentieth-Century Art, Michelangelo's Last Paintings, The Sexuality of Christ in Renaissance Art and in Modern Oblivion, and Encounters with Rauschenberg.
