A book of great charm, imbued with a love and understanding of art that speaks directly to the heart. The thirty-three pictures selected by the American sculptress Sylvia Shaw Judson cover a wide spectrum of subjects and styles, from the seventh century to the modern day. They include works by artists ranging from Durer and Brueghel to Rousseau and Klee, pottery and sculpture from ancient Greece, Oriental scrolls and wall paintings, and are accompanied by quotations from Plato and Shakespeare to Wordsworth and Walt Whitman. "Here is an art book of few words where looking, or better still, seeing, is of prime importance. The purpose is less to tell about art than to encourage its enjoyment." - Katharine Kuh, Curator of Modern Painting and Sculpture, Art Institute of Chicago
