By John Berger
With this provocative and infinitely relocating choice of essays, a preeminent critic of our time responds to the profound questions posed through the visible international. For while John Berger writes approximately Cubism, he writes not just of Braque, Léger, Picasso, and Gris, yet of that tremendous second early during this century while the realm converged round a marvelouis experience of promise. while he seems on the Modigiliani, he sees a man's countless love revealed in the elongated traces of the painted figure.
Ranging from the Renaissance to the conflagration of Hiroshima; from the Bosphorus to big apple; from the woodcarvers of a French village to Goya, Dürer, and Van Gogh; and from inner most stories of affection and of loss to the foremost political upheavals of our time, The experience of Sight encourages us to work out with a similar breadth, braveness, and ethical engagement that its writer does.
