"Nonetheless, this is a stimulating, often surprising debut collection. (83 photos, 4 pages color illustrations, not seen)"
Graham-Dixon, the art critic for the British newspaper the Independent, notes in the introduction to this collection of his terse critiques of museum exhibits and gallery shows that they were written not ``for posterity but for tomorrow's newspaper.'' That makes them more, rather than less, impressive: Whether discussing Egon Schiele's disturbing nudes, CÇzanne's turbulent apprenticeship, Claude Lorrain's ``radiant, melancholy'' landscapes, the ``graceless, scurrilous, irreverent'' late art of Picasso, or the ideology of nationalism and hygiene shaping Vermeer's paintings, Graham-Dixon is exact and persuasive.
