How might we see ourselves more clearly? Consult Rembrandt.

Who can encourage us to see more intimately? Tracey Emin is the expert.

What about helping us see through pain? Look no further than Frida Kahlo.

Too often we move through life on autopilot, blind to the life-affirming beauty of our strange
world. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

In this masterclass on how an appreciation of art can help us lead fuller lives, Will Gompertz takes us into the minds and work of thirty-one astounding artists. Each has their own unique way of seeing: with their help, we learn how to expand our own vision of life and its endless possibilities – how to look, feel and think more clearly.

‘Offers a tide lesson in not just getting more from art, but more from life itself’ The Times

‘Art can amaze us into changing our minds. This remarkable book teaches us how’ Es Devlin

‘Highly engaging and thought-provoking’ Philip Hook, author of Breakfast at Sotheby’s

‘Will Gompertz is the best teacher you never had’ Guardian
