Book Reviews - What is Painting? by Julian Bell

UK Kirkus Review » In his confrontation of the suspicions many feel about art today, painter Bell asks a host of questions - What defines painting? What happened to the idea of representation in 'modern art'? What does painting amount to at the turn of the 21st century? In his attempts to answer these questions, Ball sheds light on influential painters and introduces less fashionable artists, giving an inspired account of artistic thinking and practice. Historical evidence consistently backs up Bell's developing argument and the extensive use of illustrations complements rather than overwhelms his text. An original and delightful book. (Kirkus UK)
