Great Works: 50 Paintings Explored
The best of Tom Lubbock, one of Britain's most intelligent, outspoken and revelatory art critics, is collected here for the first time.
There are electrifying insights - using Hitchcock’ s Suspicion to explore the lighting effects in a Zurbará n still life, imagining three short films to tease out the meanings of El Greco’ s Boy Lighting a Candle - and cool judgements - how Vuillard's genius is confined to a single decade, when he worked at home, why Ingres is really ‘ an exciting wierdo’ .
Ranging with passionate perspicacity over eight hundred years of Western art, whether it's Giotto’ s raging vices, Guston’ s ‘ slobbish, squidgy’ pinks, Gericault’ s pile of truncated limbs or Gwen John’ s Girl in a Blue Dress, Tom Lubbock writes with immediacy and authority about the fifty works which most gripped his imagination.
