"He is a natural communicator whose passion for art is expressed with wit and verve."--Sir Nicholas Serota, Chair of Arts Council England
"A well-organized labor of love...Gompertz insightfully explores the processes and personalities of a remarkable roster of artists by focusing on a single work in each one's portfolios in his illuminating title. Effortless prose and laser focus on the communicative potential of art make this a worthwhile read."-- "Library Journal"
"Thorough and diverse...Gompertz's illuminations of artists' lives and minds are accessible and full of valuable information. This is an exhilarating resource for personal growth, a consciousness-raising exploration for artists and art lovers, and an asset for anyone interested in the who, what, and why of great artworks."
