"O'Doherty shifts between active participant and detached speculative mind with a fluidity and stylistic grace that propels you forward, even as it tugs at your sleeve and asks you to stop, reread, and give it more thought. O'Doherty wants us to inhabit what we perceive, to be an acute looker while fully engaging in the conundrums and contradictions that art puts to us. It is not an easy task, but it is one that he has managed admirably these many years." * Art in America *
"The present volume of this polymath's criticism is perhaps most notable for its collection of O'Doherty's writings on Edward Hopper and Mark Rothko, two painters whom the writer befriended and knew well. It also contains his latest word on the "white cube" (he coined the now-ubiquitous phrase) from 2009, an update to his influential 1976 Inside the White Cube, an early critique of institutional Modernism." * The New Criterion *
