Description

  • White paperback with scene of clock, horse, and valise.
  • John Berger’s seminal text on how to look at art

    John Berger's Ways of Seeing is one of the most stimulating and the most influential books on art in any language.
    First published in 1972, it was based on the BBC television series about which the Sunday Times critic commented:
    "This is an eye-opener in more ways than one: by concentrating on how we look at paintings . . . he will almost
    certainly change the way you look at pictures." By now he has.

    "The influence of the series and the book . . . was enormous . . . It opened up for general attention to areas of
    cultural study that are now commonplace." —Geoff Dyer

    "Berger has the ability to cut right through the mystification of the professional art critics . . . He is a liberator
    of images: and once we have allowed the paintings to work on us directly, we are in a much better position to make a
    meaningful evaluation." —Peter Fuller, Arts Review
