Back Cover Text

30 paintings from across the ages, freely admired.

Impertinent, dandyish, sexy, erudite, obsessional, classical, unclassifiable, universal.

Preface by Leonardo da Vinci (original selection of extracts from the manuscripts of Leonardo da Vinci).

Combining art criticism and autofiction, Marc Molk offers a personal and transgressive take on love of painting.

This is a book studded with women, wars, landscapes, partying and tears. Weaving together narration and contemplative analysis, it sketches out a new genre of writing on art.
