    I love this book I bought it when I was visiting London and since then this book haven't uit my bedside table yetTruth is I've really enjoyed visiting the National Gallery of LondonNow when I go to bed and have some time before I fall asleep I read randomly a description of some painting Descriptions are very interesting There's the historical side of artist and may have some explanation of the character represented in the painting Then there's the explanation of the painting the type of artistic expression and what the artist wanted to show to us All details are explained and the all painting turn out clear to meI've been learning a lot with this book and it makes me really curious about what's in it I've been doing a lot of research about art and paintingNext time I'll go to London I'll go visit the National Gallery again and I'll have a different point of view of paintings and a different sensibility to some details and characteristicsIt's a shame I don't have a similar book about the collection of the Museum Of LondonA

    When I was a child I would often go on trips to London with my family and though we freuented the Science Museum and the Natural History Museum we never went to the National Gallery which tells you a lot about my parents So it was that I first stumbled in a few months ago in my twenty fourth year and was embarrassed to discover how little I could appreciate or understand it I whizzed round in about a day or so then picked this book up from the gift shop at the end It has been uniformly helpful and I now look forward to visiting again
