Pevsner on Art and Architecture: The Radio Talks

£19.99

Product description

Some will know of Pevsner through Portillo's constant reference to him on his British Railways series on TV.
This gem of a book is in very good clean condition & a steal at only £19.99.


Pevsner disseminated the story of art to the man in the street (and particularly the man intent on gazing up at the skyline).

His writing here, though resolutely learned, reveals a love of anecdote, for example, in his series on Englishmen and their castles. Pevsner well understood how stones could tell the stories of his adoptive land and his fossicking remains thrilling. The prose itself, though loaded with reference, is conversational and intimate; it reveals Pevsner the arch-persuader, forever seeking affirmation for his narrative. The Guardian.
