Prized Possessions, Quentin Buvelot (Ed)

Prized Possessions - Quentin Buvelot, David Taylor, Rupert Goulding

I was in two minds as to whether to buy this book or not but did so, ultimately. My hesitation was because the exhibition did not greatly thrill me - there were a few paintings that really caught my attention but most, despite the obvious skill of the artists were not particularly interesting to me. This was mirrored in the book - there's nothing at all wrong with it but the subject matter just didn't grab me that much. Oh, well, on to the next one!
