About this book

Locating a shared interest in the philosophy of "art for art's sake" in aestheticism and modernismo , this study examines the changing role of art and artist during the turn-of-the-century period, offering a consideration of the multiple dichotomies of art and life, aesthetics and economics, production and consumption, and center and periphery.
