In the picture: the year in art
Andrew Graham - Dixon's weekly column 'In the Picture' in the Sunday Telegraph is one of the most regularly and widely read pieces of art criticism in Britain. This book takes fifty - two of the best of these articles, arranged through the seasons, festivals and anniversaries of the calendar, to provide a delightful unfolding pictorial commentary on the year. Some of the pictures here are well known - Fourteen Sunflowers in a Vase by Vincent Van Gogh, Flag by Jasper Johns; Graham - Dixon helps us to see them freshly. But many are not - Fish and Sandwich by Patrick Caulfield, The Beach at Trouville, The Empress Eugenie by Eugene Boudin and Atom Piece by Henry Moore. The essays about them here give us a brilliant short introduction to each. Like the very best writers about art, Andrew Graham - Dixon shows us how to look. In the Picture is the perfect Christmas gift for every art - lover, and anyone who admires first - rate writing about it.
