Synopsis

In A Short Book About Painting, renowned broadcaster Andrew Marr tackles the subject of painting: inspiration, creativity, politics, beauty and form. How does the artist create a masterpiece? What constitutes good and bad technique? How important is the imagination? Following a serious stroke in 2013 that left him partially paralysed, Marr struggled with the physical rigours of painting using oils. This led to his wrestling with some of the very fundamental questions about painting as an art form in itself. Using historical examples as well as his own works of art to assert his point, Marr's provocative, political and instructive book is not just an essential resource for all amateur painters, it is a must-read for anyone fascinated by the creative process and the limits of human artistic achievement.
