What is modern art? Why do we either love it or loathe it? And why
is it worth so much damn money? Join Will Gompertz on a dazzling
tour that will change the way you look at modern art forever. From
Monet's water lilies to Van Gogh's sunflowers, from Warhol's soup
cans to Hirst's pickled shark, hear the stories behind the
masterpieces, meet the artists as they really were, and discover
the real point of modern art. You will learn: not all conceptual
art is bollocks; Picasso is king (but Cezanne is better); Pollock
is no drip; Dali painted with his moustache; a urinal changed the
course of art, why your five year-old really couldn't do it.
Refreshing, irreverent and always straightforward, What Are You
Looking At? asks all the basic questions that you were too afraid
to ask. Your next gallery trip is going to be a little less
intimidating and a lot more interesting.
