    Portraits

    John Berger - Metis Publications, May 2018

    John Berger is a world-renowned author who inspired millions with his tv shows, publications and books on art and artists. In the Portraits, the author who passed away in 2017 says ‘’after watching an artwork in a museum or gallery, I try to enter into its workshop, into the mindset of its making. And there, I wait in hopes to learn more about how it was made.’’ Portraits is part of a book project which brings together John Berger’s writings. Published by Metis Publications in May 2018, it tells the story of portraits and takes the reader on a voyage from prehistoric times to the contemporary day. Seen as an alternative art history and guidebook, this book is certainly a must-have for artlovers.
