About this item

Hemingway collects mostly previously published studies in art history on Karl Marx's essays on British art and art theory. Looking first at aesthetics and ideology then at landscape and ideology, he considers such topics as the science of taste in the 18th century: philosophical criticism and the Scottish Historical School, bourgeois critiques of the monopoly of taste, cultural philanthropy and the invention of the Norwich School, sheep as a pictorial motif: pastoral and counter-pastoral, and John Come's "local scenery:" iconography and the ideology of the picturesque.
