Recensie(s)

The book is scrupulously positive, but Salle is at his most engaging when he is wrestling with mixed feelings about an artist's work... How to See makes a strong case that the best, most enjoyable way to understand art is simply to look at it, a lot, and then talk about it, preferably with friends. -- Roger White - The New York Times Lovely to read... [How to See] is serious but never solemn, alert to pleasure, a boulevardier's crisp stroll through the visual world. -- Dwight Garner These perceptive, far-ranging essays are drawn from deep knowledge and experience-reading this book feels like having a conversation about art with the smartest person in the room. -- Emma Cline David Salle subtly and persuasively reminds us that all art, even the most seemingly recalcitrant, is there to be looked at, and that what artists do is, exactly, teach us how to see. -- Adam Gopnik David Salle writes about art with a joyous lucidity that is both bracing-nothing, absolutely nothing, escapes his notice-and utterly disarming. He guides his readers through the complex world of contemporary art with a rare generosity of spirit, a dazzling skill at description, and a radiant honesty that are as challenging as they are irresistible. -- Ingrid Rowland David Salle's thoughtful, intelligent, beautifully written essays inspire us to think about, and look at, art in wholly new ways... How to See is a pure pleasure to read. -- Francine Prose David Salle is widely known as one of our most daring and intelligent painters, but he is also an eloquent critic. How to See is a marvel of incisive and intimate observation. -- Deborah Solomon David Salle's brilliant canvases changed everything, and now his luminescent eye and voice have married in a book that is destined to alter not only how we look at art, but the language we use to describe it. -- Hilton Als If John Berger's Ways of Seeing is a classic of art criticism, looking at the what' of art, then David Salle's How to See is the artist's reply, a brilliant series of reflections on how artists think when they make their work. The how' of art has perhaps never been better explored. -- Salman Rushdie
