Berger on drawing

£100.00

Product description

Berger On Drawing is a new anthology of essays in which John Berger explores that most primary and most primal of all art activities: drawing. The 16 texts are gathered from nearly half a century of the author's engagement with the activity of drawing, both as a writer and as a practitioner. They are published together in one volume for the first time, accompanied by newly commissioned pieces : including a major collaborative essay by John Berger and his son, the painter Yves Berger; and an exchange of letters on drawing between John Berger and the American art historian James Elkins (author of, amongst other books: What Painting Is, The Object Stares Back, Stories of Art and Pictures and Tears). As we have come to expect from Berger, the book offers many fascinating and unexpected insights into this intriguing subject, ranging from his account of a journey deep into the Chauvet Caves to see some of the earliest drawings ever made, right up to present day encounters with the contemporary drawn image.

This book is in very good condition.
