Art as Experience
Based on John Dewey's lectures on esthetics, delivered as the first William James Lecturer at Harvard in 1932, Art as Experience has grown to be considered internationally as the most distinguished work ever written by an American on the formal structure and characteristic effects of all the arts: architecture, sculpture, painting, music, and literature.

This book is a must for all serious artists and art collectors. Art as Experience
deepened my perspective on art which helped me solidify my own.
The book is jaw-dropping. I can't believe this book exists. I think its beautifully written; the metaphors are beautiful and clear. This guy was a genius. You have to be really into aesthetics. If you're not, that's not Dewey's fault.
