"John Graham's System and Dialectics of Art was first published in Paris in 1937.  It has long been out of print.  Written in catechistic style, the book serves to provide a terminology for art, to divide the history of art according to socioeconomic periods, to classify works and periods of art, and to provide a basis for evaluating art.  One of the earliest of the cognoscenti of modern art, Graham writes with insight that is often brilliant, sometimes querulous, and always stimulating." (from DJ)
