9781848362710: The Best Art You've Never Seen: RG BEST ART NEVER SEEN (Rough Guides Reference)

Across the globe there are scores of beautiful and unusual works of art that are largely unseen or fail to receive the critical acclaim they deserve. The Best Art You've Never Seen is your essential companion to this hidden world of artistic treasures. Travelling from Peru to Papua New Guinea, The Best Art You've Never Seen restores to view 101 wonderful treasures — uncovering neglected artistic wonders from off-beat corners of the world to store rooms in the world's great museums.

Written by art expert and former museum director Julian Spalding, The Best Art You've Never Seen takes you into a world of beautiful and arresting artifacts and reveals their amazing stories. It unveils a surprising and unfamiliar alternative canon of works to offer a fresh and controversial take on the world of art.

About the Author:

Julian Spalding is an art writer and expert on museums and their role in the modern world: his forthright and original views have made him a controversial figure. For thirty years he worked as a museum and gallery curator, in charge of the civic collections of Sheffield, Manchester and Glasgow. Here, he directed a total of twelve museums (including the famous Burrell Collection) and established the Glasgow Gallery of Modern Art as a radical rethinking of what modern art is. One of his books, The Art of Wonder - A History of Seeing, won the Banister Fletcher Award as the best art history book of 2006.
