This is a scholarly, theoretically smart, and accessible book about the changes in the training of artists in twentieth-century America, as that training has moved from ateliers and art academies to universities (and art schools that think of themselves as universities). More than just education history, however, this book relates the evolution of art itself to changes in pedagogy and theory (both educational and cultural).
