The book combines pictures and text half and half. The pictures are mostly half the size of the page, but there are also full size pictures, and a great quality they are. This, actually, is the best in the book. The text, on the other hand, is too small in print, too narrowly restricted to the comment of the work in question or its relation to the time in the painter's life. But it lacks a more fluid narrative of the painter's life. Of course it is not a biography, but it doesn't need to be strictly a biography. It could, and should, have interrelated more fluidly both with the painter's life and his works. The language used isn't that technical, which I deeply appreciate.
Otherwise it's quite a complete set of his finest works. A delight to the eye, although the man keeps being a distant mystery to me, even with his paintings present.
