Product Details


“I highly recommend Michael Findlay’s new book, Seeing Slowly: Looking at Modern Art, published in September by Prestel. A longtime director at New York’s Acquavella Galleries and, before that, the longtime head of Christie’s department of Impressionist and modern art, Findlay is a veteran of the most specialized art speak and practical matters of history, condition, provenance – the works. Nevertheless, he believes that an appreciation of great art does not depend on knowledge of context and, in some cases, can actually be hindered by it.” – Sarah Douglas, Editor-in-Chief, ArtNews

“Michael Findlay’s Seeing Slowly: Looking at Modern Art is a fresh and lively new book on the subject that offers a short but penetrating analysis of the problem as well as a practical guide to the steps a visitor to a museum or gallery can take to see with greater understanding and pleasure.” –The Wall Street Journal 

“A book that explains the best techniques for art viewing—and this modern art-focused option is one of the most informative we’ve found.” –Domino

“Seeing Slowly
 is an engaging, accessible work, and while it can be enjoyed by anyone, readers who shy away from modern art or feel intimidated by it have the most to gain.” -Michael Abatemarco, Pasatiempo
