Editorial Reviews

Wyckoff
Bell's writing style is comfortably relaxed, yet retains an obvious academic edge that often delivers engaging insights. The brevity of its foray into the enigmatic nature of painting renders it an ideal choice for those with a reasonably established knowledge of art history, who simply enjoy an entertaining discussion of art history. What is Painting? is unassuming in appearance, a pliable, slender book which may appeal to a wide audience, whether practicing artisans, art enthusiasts or scholars who are otherwise put off by voluminous, unapproachable texts.
