The Joy of Art is a splendid picture gallery. Variations on Twelve Themes is a selective gallery of paintings that compares and contracts art from all ages and shows how differently painters have responded to the great continuing themes. The Language of Painting is and exploration of how artists use colour or light, viewpoint or perspective, pattern or movement to delight the eye and the mind. With diagrams and reconstructions that deepen the reader's understanding of these underlying factors. Materials and Methods of Painting is a comprehensive description of the nature and distinctive characteristics of every medium of painting. Looking at Painting is a detailed analysis of nearly 50 great masterpieces of world art
