By: John Berger Published by: Gustavo GiliISBN: 9788425230325Softcover. 328 pages. 15 x 21 cmLanguage: Spanish
"I've always hated being said to be an art critic." This is how John Berger presents this anthology complete of all his essays on artists. And it would certainly be untrue to reality to reduce category of art critic to one of the European intellectuals who has not only known how to dissect the work visual arts of so many artists, but has brought new approaches to the nature of language itself visual and its role in contemporary culture. This is the first of two volumes where for the first time all thetexts that John Berger dedicated to the artists who taught and inspired him through their lives and their plays. Compiled by Tom Overton from files that Berger still donated to British Library, the texts of this first volume range from the prehistoric paintings of the cave of Chauvet until the advent of modernity with Paul Cezánne, while those of the second volume includes essays ranging from Claude Monet to Randa Mdah, a Palestinian artist born in 1983. The immeasurable observing and narrative capacity ofBerger who for decades has illuminated with different senses and values different generations of readers. A rigorous and essential work to discover Berger's legacy.
