£20.00

Available

Description

Julian Barnes began writing about art with a chapter on Géricault’s The Raft of the Medusa in his 1989 novel ‘A History of the World in 10 1/2 Chapters’. Since then he has written a series of remarkable essays, chiefly about French artists, which trace the story of how art made its way from Romanticism to Realism and into Modernism. Fully illustrated in colour throughout, this book contains Barnes’ essays on Géricault, Delacroix, Courbet, Manet, Fantin-Latour, Cézanne, Degas, Redon, Bonnard, Vuillard, Vallotton, Braque, Magritte, Oldenburg, Howard Hodgkin and Lucian Freud.
