How do you approach a work of modern art? how do you react to it? How do you learn to trust your taste in art? Michael Findlay believes the answers to these questions depend not on information but engaging your feelings. But first you must shut out all the noise.
Through personal anecdotes and beautifully reproduced artworks by popular artists such as Mark Rothko, Jacob Lawrence, and Bridget Riley, Findlay imparts his personal vision of experiencing modern art so that first-time museumgoers as well as longtime collectors are empowered to develop their own personal connection to art, rather than blindly following the dictates of fashionable opinion and market value.
Opinionated, challenging, and revelatory, Seeing Slowly will completely alter your relationship to art, ensuring you will never wander through a museum the same way again.
