Reviews

"If John Berger's Ways of Seeing is a classic of art criticism, looking at the 'what' of art, then David Salle's How to See is the artist's reply, a brilliant series of reflections on how artists think when they make their work. The 'how' of art has perhaps never been better explored." -- Salman Rushdie
"The book is scrupulously positive, but Salle is at his most engaging when he is wrestling with mixed feelings about an artist's work... How to See makes a strong case that the best, most enjoyable way to understand art is simply to look at it, a lot, and then talk about it, preferably with friends." -- Roger White - The New York Times
"Reading this collection of essays is much like spending a day gallery-hopping in New York with an unusually erudite, engaging, energetic friend who engages you by combining high-energy riffing with deep knowledge and love of visual art... Above all, Salle is a remarkably enthusiastic guide who genuinely loves art, and it is bracing to be in the company of one who has maintained his capacity for wonder after more than four decades of activity in the art world." -- Times Literary Supplement
