'A cultural exploration that deserves to become a classic' (The Press) -- 'Paton is a brilliant stylist. The intimate, almost con dential address to the reader is one of the book's strengths' (The Dominion Post) -- 'Nothing gets between Paton and a painting ... a lively and sensual stylist with a knack for making you feel his enthusiasms' (Listener) -- 'If you've ever gone to an exhibition and felt intimidated, underwhelmed or just plain confused -- and haven't we all? -- this is the book for you' (Leaf Salon)
