Alan Bennett goes to the museum
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.
Alan Bennett loves art. But whether art loves him the way he talks about it is uncertain. Alan Bennett has spent a lot of time in museums since his first school trip in 1957. Completely unbiased and without false shyness, he lets his thoughts wander freely while looking at the picture and has many a surprising flash of inspiration. Even authorities like Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Michelangelo, Bellini, Cranach, Vermeer or Hockney do not escape his eccentric iconoclasm, not a myth that would stop him. Bennett's favorite paintings fuel his theft fantasies. Just as much as he likes to direct his gaze to the museum visitors, who seem to be interested in everything but art. Bennett also tells a few things about bizarre English customs and reveals anecdotes and seriousness from his own eventful life, translated by Ingo Herzke as always congenially. From now on you will enter the world of museums differently, in any case more exhilarated.
