Praise for Andrew Graham-Dixon:


"Andrew Graham-Dixon is the leading British art critic..."
Robert Hughes

"Andrew Graham-Dixon is the dean of art critics."
A.A. Gill, the Sunday Times

"There is always something that cheers and invigorates - something that makes the reader feel more intelligent and alive."
Anthony Quinn, in the Observer.

"The pleasure is in the ideas. They fairly steam long... Graham-Dixon gets them over skilfully and succinctly without ever getting bogged down or self-conscious."
Matthew Collings, in the Independent on Sunday

"Andrew Graham-Dixon's range is unusually wide, his prose style so supple and his analysis of artists and their work so absorbing that the reader begins by being enthralled and ends by being enriched. How is this achieved? Generally, each piece begins with a description of a particular work of art in which the chief characteristics of the artist are revealed and then held up for re-examination in a wider context, invariably leading to fresh insights or reinterpretations... As a critic he is remarkably self-effacing,reserving the space for opinions on art and artists as opposed to displays of irascibility or bouts of petulance...  Then there is his irreverent sense of humour. For example, Boucher and Fragonard are described as 'painters of airborne brothels' and Giacometti's fuigures are introduced as 'graduates of one of the most punishing physical regimes of modern times: the Alberto Giacometti Total Fitness Programme'. Yet such asides are soon abandoned for passages of sustained prose that often have the plangency of a meditation, only to be brought to a sudden halt by a startling epigram. Many of these last are brilliant apercus that are both memorable and instructive..."
Christopher Lloyd, Surveyor of the Queen's Pictures, in The Daily Express
