The Painted Word
by Tom Wolfe

A well-deserved and long-overdue put-down of modern art. Wolfe is hilarious as usual. He says the purpose of modern art is to illustrate the text of art critics. He not only shows that modern art is ridiculous, he shows the nakedness of the art connoisseur.

Year Read: 1977
