遊走於藝術家的傳記與作品,極富啟發性。
不同凡響的藝術散文集。布克獎得主,大師之筆。
對於藝術有涉獵且興趣濃厚,會喜歡這些文章,文字優美,藝術中的藝術。

以《回憶的餘燼》The Sense of an Ending獲得布克獎的英國作家Julian Barnes,以文學家角度,十七篇短文,評析了他眼中的藝術家:Eugène Delacroix, Manet, Fantin-Latour, Cézanne, Degas, Redon, Bonnard, Vuillard, Vallotton, Braque, Magritte, Oldenburg, Lucian Freud ,Howard Hodgkin,橫跨浪漫主義、現實主義與現代主義,洗練的文字,獨到的見地,在閱讀中領略藝術的美感。

Julian Barnes的文字無與倫比,十分完美,不僅如此,他對藝術的賞析和研究,超越許多文學家,兩者結合,成就這本一流的藝術欣賞散文集,開創了藝術批評的另種格局。

‘Flaubert believed that it was impossible to explain one art form in terms of another, and that great paintings required no words of explanation. Braque thought the ideal state would be reached when we said nothing at all in front of a painting. But we are very far from reaching that state. We remain incorrigibly verbal creatures who love to explain things, to form opinions, to argue... It is a rare picture which stuns, or argues, us into silence. And if one does, it is only a short time before we want to explain and understand the very silence into which we have been plunged.’

Julian Barnes began writing about art with a chapter on Géricault’s The Raft of the Medusa in his 1989 novel A History of the World in 10½ Chapters. Since then he has written a series of remarkable essays, chiefly about French artists, which trace the story of how art made its way from Romanticism to Realism and into Modernism.

Fully illustrated in colour throughout, Keeping an Eye Open contains Barnes’ essays on Géricault, Delacroix, Courbet, Manet, Fantin-Latour, Cézanne, Degas, Redon, Bonnard, Vuillard, Vallotton, Braque, Magritte, Oldenburg, Howard Hodgkin and Lucian Freud.
