Since he began writing about art in 1989, Julian Barnes has penned a series of remarkable essays, chiefly about French artists. In the process, he unwittingly retraced the story of how art made its way from Romanticism to Realism and into Modernism. Illustrated in full colour, this is a stunning collection from the Booker Prize winning author of A SENSE OF AN ENDING. von Barnes, Julian
