No, the key thing about this book is the writing--or, more accurately, the writers.

Never has such a diverse collection of talent been gathered to write about art. There are eminent art critics represented here, but there are also novelists, poets, painters, sculptors and musicians (theres even a nun). It is this mix of diverse talent, united only by a passion for art, which makes this book special. The novelists include Philip Roth, Paul Auster, Siri Hustvedt, Julian Barnes, William Boyd, and AS Byatt- the critics include David Sylvester, Martin Gayford, and Jed Perl.

There are also painters writing about painters, and sculptors on sculptors- so we have Bridget Riley writing about Seurat, and the Anthony Caro on Donatello. And there is much more: David Bowie interviewing the late great Balthus, for example, and Sister Wendy Beckett discussing one of her all-time favorite artists, Titian. The result? A unique piece of publishing that will garner as much attention for the quality of the writers as for the quality of the art.
