Enthusiastic and inspiring like nobody else, the art historian and multiple best-selling author Florian Illies writes about art. Above all, he is fascinated by the painters and the pictures themselves. The past can actually be experienced as the present in his texts, under his gaze vivid images in colour emerge, historical figures become passionately loving and living people.
In his new book that assembles key texts on art and literature from 25 years, Florian Illies portrays his personal heroes from Max Friedlaender to Gottfried Benn and Harry Graf Kessler through to Andy Warhol.
