The Unfinished Painting
Available in Stock
Unfinished paintings, for Nico Van Hout, 'have an aesthetic of their own that can be curious and poetic'. In this engrossing volume, he explores what such works can reveal of an artist's creative quest or struggle with their subject. The 50 paintings under scrutiny - each beautifully reproduced along with related works - range chronologically from Jan van Eyck's St Barbara to Piet Mondrian's Victory Boogie Woogie and include works by Michelangelo, Durer, Velazquez, Poussin and Manet.
