See What Youre Missing H/B

By Will Gompertz



'Art can amaze us into changing our minds. This remarkable book teaches us how' Es Devlin Artists have learnt to pay attention. The rest of us spend most of our time on autopilot, rushing from place to place, our overfamiliarity blinding us to the marvellous, life-affirming phenomena of our world. But it doesn't have to be this way. In his typically engaging style, Will Gompertz takes us into the minds of artists - from emerging stars to old masters - to show us how to look at and experience the world with their heightened powers of perception. In See What You're Missing we learn, for example, how Rembrandt can help us see ourselves, how David Hockney helps us to see nature, and how Frida Kahlo can help us see through pain. Each artist has their own unique way of looking, which when applied to our own lives stimulates our senses so we might know the intoxicating feeling of being truly alive. 'Highly engaging and thought-provoking' Philip Hook, author of Breakfast at Sotheby's 'Lucid and revealing' Michael Prodger, The Times 'Will Gompertz is the best teacher you never had' Guardian
