About the Author

Will Gompertz writes, presents, and produces programs about the arts for the BBC. He lives in Oxford, England.


"Gompertz has an uncanny knack for making difficult art (and ideas) easy...A lively, witty account of the major moments and movements of the past 150 years."--Associated Press

"An insightful love letter to modern art and an irreverent rejection of the notion that its pleasures are reserved for a chosen few... Each [chapter] hums with engaging history and entertaining anecdotes, cheeky asides and accessible, illuminating criticism."-NPR "Gompertz is determined to dispel the layman's fear of the modern art world and those who inhabit it. What Are You Looking At?, which comes out this week, does a very good job of this--replacing isolating esotericism with witty and chatty commentary."--Interview "A deeply enlightening and buoyant history of modern art and beyond."--Booklist (starred review) "[A] highly lucid, lively, and buoyantly composed history...while his tone is breezy and conversational, [Gompertz] astutely and often wittily describes the core of every movement and its key artists."--Publishers Weekly
