Description

In this generously illustrated book, world-renowned Yale art historian Robert Farris Thompson gives us the definitive
account of tango, "the fabulous dance of the past hundred years–and the most beautiful, in the opinion of Martha
Graham.”

Thompson traces tango’s evolution in the nineteenth century under European, Andalusian-Gaucho, and African influences
through its representations by Hollywood and dramatizations in dance halls throughout the world. He shows us tango not
only as brilliant choreography but also as text, music, art, and philosophy of life. Passionately argued and
unparalleled in its research, its synthesis, and its depth of understanding, Tango: The Art History of Love is a
monumental achievement.
