Michael Sadler


In his attempt to trace the adaptation of taste to the development of modern art, Sadler makes the somewhat predictable argument that the young appreciate revolution in art whereas the old are afraid of it. Political and social ferments at work of nationalism, functionalism, and the comparison of cultures, which are creating an immense change in the wider social reaction to artistic production.
