The Weeping and the Laughter (Coronet Books) by Noel Barber

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Noel Barber, 1 Feb 2013
Written to the classic Noel Barber formula but none the less enjoyable. Not quite as good as Tanamera or A Woman in Cairo but well written and engrossing.
Picasso (Dover Fine Art, History of Art) by Gertrude Stein

Easy to read and written from an interesting perspective. A very personal memory of Picasso.Only covers up to start of First World War though.
Art History and Its Methods: A Critical Anthology by Eric Fernie
This book is very similar to Preziosi's the 'Art of Art History', but it is useful none the less. Fernie writes clear introductions to the texts. An e-book format would be useful.
