5.0 out of 5 stars There is so much more to art that just paint and canvas!, 28 Jan. 2007
This review is from: Simon Schama's Power of Art (Hardcover)
After being totally addicted to the BBC series, I was given this book as a present by my long-suffering partner and I can honestly say it's one of the best coffee table/non-fiction books I've ever owned. Schama is an amazingly engaging writer, he has you there, focused on everything he says - you take in the information - just like the best teacher you ever had at school - you just cant help it. If school had been half as interesting as this I would have had a degree in art!! And as a post script, I dragged the afore mentioned, long suffering partner round the Louvre for nearly four hours tracking down the paintings in this book and he had to listen to me waxing lyrical about the artist/painting - OK, he's probably questioning the day he bought this book for me but you know what I think I actually have him interested in art as more than just a piece of canvas and paint!
