Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Word and Image repays the effort it demands in heaped measure, because Norman Bryson writes with rare intellectual exhilaration. On page after page, he detonates fresh ideas carrying far wider repercussions than his immediate subject matter. He himself has a way of turning pedagogy into pyrotechnics, just as the painters whom he discusses here with such commitment - LeBrun, Watteau, Greuze, Chardin, David - transform moral enigmas into paint.' Marina Warner, The Sunday Times
