Playing to the Gallery: Helping Contemporary Art in its Struggle to be Understood

Hugely popular contemporary artist, Grayson Perry is a fully paid-up member of the art establishment, yet he wants to show that any of us can appreciate art (after all, there is a reason he's called this book Playing to the Gallery and not 'Sucking up to an Academic Elite'). Based on his hugely popular BBC Radio 4 Reith Lectures and full of pictures, this funny, personal journey through the art world answers the basic questions that might occur to us in an art gallery but seem too embarrassing to ask.

Illustrated by the artist, this charming book features cartoons, diagrams and plenty of good humour.
