One of the primary reasons why tourists visit London is to experience the cultural richness which this great city offers and art galleries are high on the list of what most visitors want to see. This book seeks to inform and amuse these visitors and also residents who wish to make the most of what their city has to offer. Geoffrey Smith is not an art professional and readers will find the text to be accessible, at times irreverent, and not too full of art jargon. The book is written for the gallery visitor not the art historian. Everyone will have a view about the selection contained here - why hasn't your favourite painting been included? If you want to have your say, you have a place to sound off.
