THE
DEMANDS
OF ART
by Max Raphael
With an introduction
by Sir Herbert Read
Raphael is exactly the kind of philosopher of art that
the world most needs-a man of great scholarship and
equal sensibility, a man who believed in the future
but realized that the world is changing and must be
changed.... -Herbert Read
In The Demands of Art, Max Raphael (1889-1952)
sought to formulate a theoretical framework for under-
standing art. Through detailed analyses of carefully
selected works by Cezanne, Degas, Giotto, Rembrandt,
and Picasso, he achieved a useful, empirical theory that
is independent of individual taste or contemporary
fashion. Translation by Norbert Guterman, from
unpublished German manuscripts. 281 pp., 42
illustrations, with many foldouts ( 1 in color).
