The largest book I've ever borrowed from the library. Almost too huge to read comfortably. Definitely a coffee-table book. I know nothing of art, in fact I had never heard of this artist. Some of his art I really enjoyed. Some of it was Salvador Dali-esque. Mattise and Picasso inspired. Some of it was so unfinished or, almost macabre in a child-like way. Like I said, I don't know the first thing about art so that's probably why I didn't understand a good portion of his paintings.
