Dear Friends,
One of the most useful texts for those who do not have the chance to =
learn via an advanced institution of education is a heavy paperback by =
Edmund Burke Feldman, "Thinking about Art". 1985. ISBN 0-13-917485-0. =
There may be others but I like this one.
Just one quotation, to give you a flavour;

to painting.=20
Enjoy the read.
Best regards,
