Kurzbeschreibung

In Still Looking, John Updike has collected together his thoughts and observations on American art to produce an eye-opening follow-up to his 1989 art criticism classic Just Looking. Beginning with early American portraits and landscapes, he goes on to extol two late-nineteenth-century masters, Winslow Homer and Thomas Eakins, considers the eccentric pre-modern painter and graphic artist James McNeill Whistler, discusses the competing American Impressionists and Realists of the early twentieth century - and concludes with appreciations of the art of Edward Hopper, Jackson Pollock and Andy Warhol. The resulting collection of essays is proof that Updike is still looking and seeing what only he can describe.'As a writer Updike can do anything he wants' Margaret Atwood'John Updike writes with a steady brilliance about the world out there' Guardian
