As pillars of cultural tourism, London and New York are home to some of the world’s best museums and galleries, and whether you’re a first-time visitor or a long serving resident, navigating your way around these cities’ collections can be tricky. These books provide fully illustrated guides to the riches of New York and London, and with the next volumes mapping out Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam and Madrid there’s no excuse for visiting the Tate or MoMA and leaving with nothing more than a branded pencil.
The Art Guides feature concise histories and critical analysis of many important artists as well as key movements, guiding you through the work of the pre-Raphaelites, pinpointing where to have a drink in the beauty of Burne-Jones’s stained glass in the Holy Trinity Church in Sloane Street and showing you where to see Jackson Pollock’s former homes and haunts.
Beautifully illustrated and most importantly, wholly accessible, it’s possible to see these becoming the Wallpaper* city guides for art lovers.
