This is an auction for HOW TO LOOK AT A PAINTING by Justin Paton.

"A multi-award winning journey through the hidden world of art. Have you ever looked at a painting and just wondered what it all means? How can you distinguish 'good' from 'bad'? A great artist from a terrible one? Or even if it's art at all? To the average art aficionado, trying to make sense of all the various artistic movements, techniques, types and trends can be overwhelming. In this superb volume, acclaimed art writer Justin Paton takes us on a journey of artistic exploration through the centuries and across the painted world - from the luscious fruits of Caravaggio's Italy to the mysterious 'tombstones' of Japanese artist On Kawara. Whether you are a keen art collector, serious student or just visit the occasional gallery, "How to Look at a Painting" will open your eyes to things you never knew you missed!"
