In this gorgeously illustrated book, join Betty Churcher on a personal tour of her most beloved works, including masterpieces by Rembrandt, Goya, Manet, Velazquez, Courbet, Vermeer and Cezanne. A trained artist, Betty's sketches reveal the secrets within the artworks and the processes of their creation. With the gift for making art accessible that characterised her popular television series, she gently leads your eye to these paintings' intimate details, describing their kinship with other masterpieces and their place in the history of art. Betty Churcher's deeply held belief that art has the power to transport the viewer to another place and time is evident in this delightful book. Here, there is no doubting the magic of great art.

"Churcher writes with clarity and humility as she leads the reader to discover intimate details of the paintings and experience their exquisite beauty." -- Frank Nolan Ballarat, Courier
"A beautifully produced memoir with her own drawings and notes beside the originals." --Jean Ferguson, Illawarra Mercury
