You must read this book! A wonderful book, clear, concise, entertaining and engaging. I love going to galleries but often feel frustrated with my lack of knowledge. Soutter helps you understand and encourages you to embrace new ideas. When I visited The Tate this week I had a whole different appreciation for the art. Soutter is a star. Looking forward to the next book!
