It's actually not bad reading. This is a history book. It says almost nothing about what to look for or at when you see a performance. 3 people found this helpful. I thought I would get bored reading about dance, but the book was written well and contained interesting information. It says almost nothing.

Book by Hendrick, Becky
  • Becky Hendrick's Getting It: A Guide to Understanding and Appriciating Art is the book I wish I had written. Had it been available when I was teaching art appreciation, it would have been required reading for my classes. To many people faced with the overwhelming range of art in museums and galleries, art seems to be a joke; and the joke is on them. Hendricks addresses this in a quote from Hans Hoffman: "If you do not understand a man who speaks a language you do not speak, is this therefore proof that the man babbles only nonsense?" Hendrick's response is to say we need to learn how to speak more fluently the constantly evolving language of art. And in clear language she offers readers clues to becoming fluent in that language. It all starts, she says, with learning how to look. "The average time spent looking at a work of art in a museum is ten seconds, just enough time to pass judgement on it and walk away. Doesn't it seem odd that someone wanting to Get It would pass judgement on art as a first step rather than a final one? Because that's what judgement is: closure. We know this; in a court of law, after all the evidence is heard and all the arguments are made, a verdict comes. ... Judging, whether it's done in a courtroom or in a museum, is the last thing we need to do." In this slim volume, Hendricks offers simple exercises in objective and non-judgemental viewing to help us learn how to finally make that judgement. And she does it with style and humor. Getting It is a book that should be owned by all students, teachers, docents, curators and collectors.

  • I received this book as a birthday gift (from artist mother to artist daughter) together with a note: "I know you could have written this book yourself, but hope you'll enjoy it anyway!" The author's inscription reads "I hope this little book speaks to you in a big way." Let me just say it is one of the best gifts of countless perfect gifts I've received from people who seem to "get it!" I have a fairly ecclectic library of books on art and artists, and this one will have its place among the rare gems that I refer to often. Although the author may have intended this book for an audience of non-artists, I believe her collection of essays and charmingly simple illustrations will be just as refreshing to art-majors and professionals. She is funny, yet serious, and the book is as much about getting art as it is about getting anything worth getting in life. As a bonus, the format suits the topic and is ideal in every way. It feels as good as it looks as good as it reads as good as it is. Don't think twice about Getting It!

  • For the first time in my long life I finally get it!! I have reread this wonderful book twice recently before going to cities with major art museums to remind myself how to look at and how to feel the art. This book cuts to the core of the wonder and the mystery of art and helps nonartists like myself understand a lot more than we would have without it. Beautifully done.

  • This terrific, concise book explains how to "get" art to people without any art background.
    The basic vocabulary of art such as lines, shapes, space, value and color are discussed as the foundation. The artist's intentions in using these resources are explained. The author describes how to objectively describe art and to understand the artist's intentions. The major periods and, movements in art are described. The book has sufficient pictures and sketches to illustrate the examples.
    I highly recommend this book to anybody curious about art. Travelers and museum- goers who want to understand what they are going to see will benefit from reading this book before going.

  • Years of experience as a teacher of art appreciation, and as an artist herself, Betty has a firm grasp on the essentials of teaching the art of painting to the completely unschooled. Great examples for teachers and educators, and offers new insights into actual artworks.

    Nicely put together as a book as well, has a hand-made limited edition feel. (which it probably is) Too bad it's out of print, it's a great little book.
