Reviews

John Berger's "Portraits" is among the greatest books on art I've ever read. -- Zadie Smith * New York Times *
A volume whose breadth and depth bring it close to a definitive self-portrait of one of Britain's most original thinkers -- Financial Times
Perhaps the greatest living writer on art . reminds us just how insufficient most art commentary is these days . an indispensible guide to understanding art from cave painting to today's experimenters. -- Spectator [Books of the Year]
In this extraordinary new book, John Berger embarks on a process of re-discovery and re-figuring of history through the visual narratives given to us by portraiture. Berger's ability for storytelling is both incisive and intriguing. He is one of the greatest writers of our time. -- Hans Ulrich Obrist, author of 'Ways of Curating'
Berger's art criticism transcends its genre to become a very rare thing-literature * The Nation *
Berger is a writer one demands to know more about ... an intriguing and powerful mind and talent. * New York Times *
Much of his best critical prose appears in [this] chunky volume * Economist *
