John Berger on ArtistsBook - 2015
A major new book from one of the world's leading writers and art critics One of the world's most celebrated art writers, John Berger, takes us through centuries of art revealing his fascination with the artist. In Portraits, Berger connects the artist and history in revolutionary ways, from the prehistoric paintings of the Chauvet caves to Cy Twombly's radical work. In his penetrating and singular prose, Berger presents entirely new ways of thinking about artists both canonized and obscure, from Rembrandt to Henry Moore, Jackson Pollock to Picasso. Throughout, Berger maintains the essential connection between politics, art and the wider study of culture. A beautifully illustrated walk through many centuries of visual culture from one of the contemporary world's most incisive critical voices.
