This book provides some of the necessary tools to better understand and appreciate art. Divided into chapters covering the principles of colour, scale, process, placement and content, the book also focuses on how experience and pleasure are just as valid responses to art works as specialist knowledge.

Examples from around the world and throughout art history—from works by Fra Angelico and Berthe Morisot to Kazuo Shiraga and Kara Walker—are used to demonstrate how a handful of core strategies and skills can help enhance the experience of viewing art works.
