Books: Analyzing the Biases of Western Art History With Hard Data

Apr 5, 2021 • View in browser
This week, Lydia Pyne dives into the world of data visualization with Painting by Numbers, a new book that probes the biases of Western art history with hard facts. While author Diana Seave Greenwald can’t make it make sense, she does offer some compelling takeaways of how we got here.
While you’re at it, check out an excerpt from the new Hokusai graphic biography or join a letter writing workshop that honors the departed.
Monica Uszerowicz also caught up with the poet Hanif Abdurraqib, who just published an exciting new book on Black performance.
Happy reading.
