Sense of Sight

John Berger


With this provocative and infinitely relocating choice of essays, a preeminent critic of our time responds to the profound questions posed by way of the visible international. For whilst John Berger writes approximately Cubism, he writes not just of Braque, Léger, Picasso, and Gris, yet of that tremendous second early during this century while the area converged round a marvelouis feel of promise. whilst he appears to be like on the Modigiliani, he sees a man's limitless love revealed in the elongated strains of the painted figure.
   Ranging from the Renaissance to the conflagration of Hiroshima; from the Bosphorus to new york; from the woodcarvers of a French village to Goya, Dürer, and Van Gogh; and from deepest reports of affection and of loss to the key political upheavals of our time, The experience of Sight encourages us to determine with an identical breadth, braveness, and ethical engagement that its writer does.
