Fear of Art: Censorship and Freedom of Expression in Art
by Moshe Carmilly
Publisher's Description
"This book is essentially a study of how the `fear of art'--fear of its power and persuasive qualities--has caused those in power, whether religious or political, to censor art and artists, or to use certain types of art as propaganda tools. The purpose of Fear of Art is to analyze the reasons for that fear and to follow the struggle from the second century (B.C.) until today. Fear of Art presents an overview of the collision between artistic freedom and its subjugation in plastic art (painting and sculpture)."--from the preface by the author.
