If Paintings Could Talk – Michael Wilson


This book unlocks the hidden history of masterpieces from the National Gallery, until now buried in larger boooks, articles or archives. Meander through the pages as you would around a fine gallery and immerse yourself in a treasury of facts, discoveries and anecdotes. Many are touching, some are highly amusing and others are startling, but all are addietive reading.
If the Paintings Could Talk presents these accounts in an A-Z format, richly illustrated and skilfull cross-referenced, leading art lovers on an intriguing journey.
