Art and Reality: The Clark Lectures, 1956 by Joyce Cary
This product is currently sold out.
“This is an attempt to examine the relation of the artist with the world as it seems to him, and to see what he does with it.” So marks the beginning of the late Joyce Cary’s invaluable lectures at Cambridge, in which he explores the artist and his outline––aesthetically, writerly, and all the time for the interpreting subject, always both in the world and of it––looking for where the eye stops and observation, place, meaning might appear. His background in both writing and fine art successfully form two pillars of knowledge and critical mobility, and support as much as they complicate one another’s roles in relation to each other, to the observable world, and to Cary’s study at hand. His experience richly comes together to diversify and amplify Cary’s talk, from a point of view and with the mental acuity only Cary could produce.
