One Hundred Details from Pictures in the National Gallery Reviews


"This stroll through one of the world's greatest museums with one of the most erudite connoisseurs of this century delivers a master class in how to look at pictures. By isolating passages and comparing images, the book demonstrates how a cultivated eye distinguishes the great from the ordinary." --"Philadelphia Inquirer"

"Kenneth Clark's "100 Details."..provides a panoply of fine details from great masters of the past." --"Christian Science Monitor"

"Art lovers will delight in this reissue, which was originally written in 1938 while Kenneth Clark was director of the National Gallery. Presented for the first time in faithful full-color reproduction, the randomly chosen details from 71 of the Gallery's best-loved paintings are arranged in pairs of iconographic similarity. Some of the comparisons are obvious...and others are inspired...Clark's highly readable comments are typical of the style that endeared him years ago to a wide audience of art connoisseurs and amateurs alike." --J. William Shank, "Leonardo"

"Affecting and illuminating." --"Times Educational Supplement"
