Encounters With ArtBook - 2016
Every Saturday for the best part of a decade, thousands of people have been turning to the pages of the British newspaper The Independent to read Michael Glover's thoughts about a particular piece of art. Pithy, astute, erudite, often humorous, and always engaging, these enormously popular essays are filled with compelling and entertaining observations as well as trenchant commentary about art, history, culture, and humanity. Collected for the first time in book form, this selection of 50 essays - a number of which have been exclusively written for this volume - is organized in an unexpected manner, allowing readers to see connections and juxtapositions between works. Their subjects cover an enormous span in terms of style, era, and geography-from Rembrandt's Bathsheba with King David's Letter and El Greco's The Vision of St. John to Ai Wei Wei's Iron Tree and Georgia O'Keeffe's Single Lily with Red. All the texts are accompanied by full-color illustrations of the work in focus.
