Ten Poems about Art | Compiled by: Geoff Dyer

Poems about art have a long and vivid history, and some of our greatest poets have tried to capture in verse the beguiling worlds of colour on canvas. Geoff Dyer's remarkably wide-ranging selection encourages us to look at familiar and unfamiliar paintings and artists with fresh eyes.

We find ourselves in Vermeer's studio next door to a rowdy alehouse and meet a Bonnard nude day-dreaming in her bathtub. These poems are sure to delight every art lover, reminding us that any painting worth its salt has a thousand different meanings.
