One Hundred Details from the National Gallery (HB)
Originally published in 1938 when Kenneth Clark was director of the National Gallery, London, this book presents Clark’s favourite details from paintings in the museum’s collection. Newly updated and handsomely illustrated, this landmark book juxtaposes pairs of details rarely viewed together – such as cupids from Velázquez’s Rokeby Venus and Correggio’s The School of Love – to illuminate fascinating analogies and contrasts between paintings and artists. Clark’s erudite but accessible responses to these works are broad in scope and approach, and range from a few lines to an entire history of the still life. Featuring all new color reproductions, One Hundred Details offers a unique and intimate look at these paintings through the discerning eye of a world-renowned art historian and director.View spreads of this book (2 MB PDF)
"…his most influential book. Clark wanted to encourage viewers to look more attentively at artworks, and to see images in a fresh way. He juxtaposed details from pictures by different artists, often from different periods, inviting his readers to compare and contrast."
James Hall, The Guardian, 30 June 2012
‘Lord Clark’s… vast erudition is conveyed in an easy, conversational style that both informs us and makes us eager for more’, The Wall Street Journal
