¿Qué estás mirando? 150 años de arte moderno en un abrir y cerrar de ojos

Amantes del arte, escépticos y desconcertados: esta historia del arte moderno es para vosotros

¿Qué es el arte moderno? ¿Por qué se ama o se odia? ¿Y por qué es siempre tan exageradamente caro?

Will Gompertz, director de Arte de l. a. BBC, exdirector de l. a. Tate Gallery de Londres y uno de los mayores expertos del mundo, ha escrito una deslumbrante guía que cambiará para siempre l. a. manera en que miramos el arte contemporáneo. Desde los nenúfares de Monet hasta los girasoles de Van Gogh, pasando por las latas de sopa de Warhol y los tiburones en formol de Hirst, este libro nos descubre l. a. historia que hay detrás de las obras, las personas que hay detrás de los artistas y los angeles verdadera magia que esconde el arte moderno.

Dirigido tanto a escépticos como a convencidos, ¿Qué estás mirando? resuelve todas las preguntas que siempre nos planteamos y nunca nos atrevimos a hacer. En un sorprendente recorrido por los últimos ciento cincuenta años del arte salpicado de reveladoras anécdotas, Gompertz nos explica en qué consiste los angeles genialidad de Pollock o Cézanne, cómo un urinario cambió el curso de l. a. historia o por qué nuestro sobrino de cinco años realmente no lo haría igual. unique, irreverente y muy accesible, este libro rompe con mitos y prejuicios y hará que nuestra próxima visita a un museo sea menos intimidante y mucho más apasionante.

La crítica ha dicho:

«Will Gompertz [. .. ] un tipo singular. Rápido como los angeles sangre. Y de algún modo un defensor de l. a. claridad en un territorio de opacidades. Entra en faena desde un libro lúcido que tiene algo de síntesis psychological de lo complejo. [. .. ] una exploración que desacraliza con audacia e ironía tanto el cuello duro de los angeles crítica de arte, a los angeles vez que hace su propia crítica desde los angeles orilla de los angeles claridad»
Antonio Lucas, El Mundo

«Es tan provocador, irreverente, irónico, divertido y políticamente incorrecto como muchos de los artistas de los que habla. Gompertz da un buen repaso (en todos los sentidos) al arte moderno y contemporáneo. Su visión del mundo del arte es inteligente, salpimentada con buenas dosis de humor. »
Nati Pulido, ABC

«Tanta contundencia en las opiniones proviene de Will Gompertz, director de arte de l. a. BBC y considerado una autoridad mundial en el arte moderno y contemporáneo. [. .. ] En realidad, el libro requiere algo más que un uncomplicated pestañeo. Se lee más bien como un completo y ameno guide de 472 páginas. »
Ángeles García, El País

«Para salvar l. a. brecha que separa a muchos visitantes de los objetos que contemplan, Gompertz ha escrito precisamente ¿Qué estás mirando? , un ameno recorrido por los angeles creación moderna para que los angeles comprenda todo el mundo. »
Javier Ors, l. a. Razón

«Will Gompertz es de esa estirpe de profesionales que, porque de verdad saben, no necesita demostrar nada. Aúna sencillez, falta de afectación y hondura, con lo que alimenta en quien le escucha los angeles sensación de que en cada una de sus palabras hay un poso de sabiduría. [. .. ] ¿Qué estás mirando? , un texto unique, irreverente y muy accesible que, dirigido tanto a escépticos como a convencidos, resuelve una buena porción de esas preguntas que muchos se plantean y pocos se atreven a formular. »
