ABSTRACT
The article focuses on two books "The Demon of Progress in the Arts," by D.B. Wyndham Lewis and "The Eye of Man," by Selden Rodman. Rodman's new book approaches toughly the same problem as Lewis--"that in our present passion for the abstract we tend to forget that the very greatest art has been concerned with man and his relation to other men and to God," as he puts it--but it does so in a totally different spirit. While Lewis insists on imposing his own individuality on the scene, Rodman is trying sincerely to understand the direction of art today.
