?Kenyon Cox?s insistence that painters be able to paint will strike the contemporary art world as a piece of foaming radical heresy.? ?Tom Wolfe, author of The Bonfire of the Vanities

Is there a true classical mode that strains of Western painting have followed since Greek and Roman antiquity? Kenyon Cox thought so and argues his point persuasively throughout this book, as he did in the The Classic Point of View (a Classical America reissue).
