Abstract:

"This essential companion to all the major North American museums and galleries highlights some of the world's greatest paintings, from Giotto to Robert Motherwell, on display across the U.S. and Canada. Julian Porter brings a passion for art that began with a seven-year stint as a student tour guide in Europe, followed by countless tours he has conducted at galleries in Europe and North America. His co-author, Stephen Grant, brings a wealth of expertise in the twentieth-century artists, and presents them within the framework of a North American-led, sustained burst of originality and shock. Presented with originality, wit, and irreverence to complement Julian and Stephen's comprehensive knowledge of the art world, here is the best that North American galleries have to offer. Focused and curated to give you everything you need to enjoy the greatest works of art in the best company, and save you the sore feet and superfluous information."--
