About the Author

Simon Hewitt read History & French at Oxford University, where he also studied History of Art as a postgraduate under the legendary Francis Haskell. Since 1985 he has reported on Art and Culture for numerous international publications, including Art + Auction, The Art Newspaper and The Huffington Post. He lived for 24 years in France - also writing about wine for Decanter magazine, conducting player interviews for the Paris St-Germain matchday programme and captaining, then coaching, the national cricket team. He moved to Switzerland in 2008, since when he has written regularly about classical music and lectured on Art History at the Vreije Universiteit in Brussels.


"A magnificent journey through time. An amazing book from first page to last."--Francoise Joulie, curator of drawings, Musee du Louvre, Paris
"A remarkable book and a work of impressive scholarship, yet eminently readable. Chronicling Hewitt's discoveries, the fascinating people he met on his journey, and the exotic locations he ended up in, his role in piecing it all together is a story in itself."--John Falding, former arts reporter, Financial Times
