A Taste of Art London takes readers on a stimulating journey around ten of the city’s best galleries, exploring ten significant artworks from each location, and thus offering an insightful sampling of a hundred works of art. In short, this book works as a curated highlight reel of London’s great galleries, and it acts as the ultimate antidote to museum fatigue in a city bursting with exceptional art. The paintings, sculptures, and objects selected from each gallery focus on a different time period in the history of Western Art, beginning with the Roman Britain era at the British Museum and ending with a look at later pieces displayed at the prestigious Royal Academy of Arts.
 
Through carefully crafted “tasting notes,” authors Jacqueline Cockburn and Holly Grothe Howard offer an engaging, narrative look at each work, accompanied by a relevant quotation to whet the reader’s appetite. Meanwhile, a "key ingredient," illustrated by designer Felicity Price-Smith, unlocks the art’s meaning and encourages the reader to not only look closer, but to more fully explore all one hundred pieces in depth.
 
With a useful map to locate the museums, as well as a checklist of the one hundred works featured, A Taste of Art London makes a wonderful companion for the art-savvy traveler exploring Britain’s historical creative center for the first, tenth, or hundredth time.
