5.0 out of 5 stars inspiring, 11 Nov 2011
This review is from: Berger on Drawing (Paperback)
Berger writes beautifully and thoughtfully, and this book is as much about looking at the world and understanding one's relationship to it as it is about drawing. I know of no other author who is able to capture so many conflicting feelings about drawing as a process and its connection to other parts of life.
I borrowed this book many times from the library before getting my own, and I'm very glad to have a copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent little book, 28 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Berger on Drawing (Paperback)
A series of essays from a sensitive writer. Not on how to draw but getting at obliquely why we draw & how drawing can function for us. Everybody should draw to live vividly (forget so-called 'talent' - and abandon the childish need to make a pleasing drawing for others - just draw honestly and keep drawing - become involved in the visual world and strangely lay down memories that include sounds, feelings external & internal, smells...)

5.0 out of 5 stars Drawn to that moment, 7 Oct 2011
This review is from: Berger on Drawing (Paperback)
I had read some of Berger's previous works such as "Ways of Seeing" many years ago.. Recently I have started drawing, and I found "Berger on Drawing" absolutely cuts to the bone of what it is to draw, and the nature of the drawing itself. The book is a collection of individual essays on different aspects of drawing and some of the great artists' (Picasso, Van Gogh, Watteau) use of drawing. His reflections on the intimacy of drawing are vital, brilliant, inspiring. Anyone who draws, or likes looking, really looking at things, will love this book.
