RRP £19.95

Price £13.90

Let's See brings together for the first time seventy-five of Schjeldahl s pieces, covering subjects from ancient Greece, Mexico, and Byzantium, through Raphael, Rubens, and Rembrandt, to Bruce Nauman, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and John Currin.

These writings seek out, with precision and economy, the essence of the individual artist or work, but they never lose sight of the bigger picture: What is beauty? What does it mean to be an American artist? What does the art we produce and admire tell us about ourselves?

Schjeldahl s far-reaching curiosity leads him to modest shows in private galleries as well as to large-scale exhibitions. His columns include profiles of prominent members of the art world, along with stories of personal encounters with contemporary artists. The unique introduction – twenty questions, each one posed to Schjeldahl by a different artist or writer – shows the high regard in which he is held by the art world.
