Paper Museum: Writings about Painting, Mostly
This work is made up of 80 essays on a widely diverse range of subjects - English and French painting of all periods, Grand Masters, Modernists and post-moderns. To all of them, Graham Dixon brings insight unmatched by any other British commentator on pictures or sculpture, inprose which is not only oftern very moving in itself, but can actually convey and enhance the experience of looking at the works of art themselves.
