Summary
Lively and personal, yet keenly observant and nuanced, eight essays by novelist Hustvedt invite readers to engage with art in her company. She talks about her experience and excitement when looking at paintings and discusses in detail selected works by Giorgione, Vermeer, Chardin, Goya, Morandi, Mitchell, and Richter, as well as some masters of the still life, including Cotán, Soutine, Cézanne, and Guston. Color plates of the works under discussion are included in this attractive, well made (Smythe-sewn) book. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
