Abstract:

"Who can resist an art critic with attitude?"--Former Supreme Court of Canada Justice, Ian Binnie -- This essential companion to all the major European museums and galleries discusses some of the world's greatest paintings from Giotto through to Picasso. Julian Porter's passion for art began with the seven years he spent as a student tour guide in Europe. Since then, he has conducted countless tours of Europe's famous galleries - The Louvre, The Prado, The Hermitage, The Rijksmuseum, the Sistine Chapel, and many others. In the usually pretentious arena of art connoisseurs, Porter's voice stands out as fresh and original. He finds the best of the best, which he describes with entertaining irreverence, and spares you hours of sore feet and superfluous information.
