Looking at pictures can be fun. Dutch art historian Henk van Os has known this for many years, and this knowledge—along with van Os's unique presentation—has helped make his weekly television program the most popular art show in the Netherlands. Stories of Images , packed with unexpected questions, provocative comparisons, and juicy anecdotes, is a richly illustrated tour of van Os's art world, from Paulus Potter's celebrated paintings of cows and the controversial work of Andres Serrano to the masterpieces of Rembrandt and Rodin. As this book demonstrates, looking at art is an art in itself—and one as vibrant and entertaining as any other.
