This audio recording is of the first part of a lecture given at The New School on the subject of the nature and definition of art, especially in the context of the end of the modernist period in art. New School lecturers in art history John McDonald Moore and Bobbie Werblud take alternating turns discussing various artists and artworks of different periods, and conflicting opinions on good art versus bad art, fine art versus decorative art, and high art versus low art. Artists whose works are used as examples in this part of the lecture are: Constantin Brâncuși, Carl Andre, Richard Tuttle, Claude Monet, Vincent Van Gogh, Jean-Léon Gérôme, Henri Matisse, Marcel Duchamp, Andy Warhol, William Morris, Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, Edouard Vuillard, Gustav Klimt and Jean Dubuffet. Ancient Egyptian art is also discussed.
