Visitors to art exhibitions sometimes wonder why a particular work of art is displayed in a museum. Every day, museums and collectors make decisions with respect to art acquisitions. Juries and committees regularly meet to discuss the awarding of grants and prizes. Yet what criteria are employed in making these decisions?

Reputable expert authors examine this controversial question in this volume of texts conceived as a guidebook. In six knowledgeably and entertainingly written chapters, they describe the criteria that can be applied in the various disciplines of contemporary art (painting, drawing, prints, video, photography, and sculpture) to recognize and judge the quality of a work. This book, now available in an affordable paperback edition, brings a long-overdue debate to the public, and—thanks to its mix of outstanding professional opinions—it has quickly become a standard work.
