In this superb volume, acclaimed art writer Justin Paton takes us on a journey of artistic exploration through the centuries and across the painted world - from the luscious fruits of Caravaggio's Italy to the mysterious 'tombstones' of Japanese artist On Kawara.Whether you are a keen art collector, serious student or just visit the occasional gallery, How to Look at a Painting will open your eyes to things you've never seen before.
