John Berger — Ways of Seeing

John Berger — Ways of Seeing


John Berger's Ways of Seeing changed the way people think about painting and art criticism. This watershed work shows, through word and image, how what we see is always influenced by a whole hose of assumptions concerning that nature of beauty, truth, civilization, form, taste, class and gender.  Exploring the layers of meaning within oil paintings, photographs and graphic art, Berger argues that when we see, we are not just looking—we are reading the language of images.

Based on the BBC television series, John Berger's Ways of Seeing is a unique look at the way we view art, published as part of the Penguin on Design series in Penguin Modern Classics.
