You’ll never look at the same paintings again, propagandist and writer Michael Tishtik promised in his book The Art of Perceiving Art to write about art. In the new edition of the publication, which was first published in 2011, he said, he made only slight editing. In the preface he wrote: “In those eleven years art may have changed little, but the conditions of our perception of it may not have changed at all.” You can win the book in a regular contest on the iROZHLAS.cz server.

“We still cannot and do not want to prepare for visiting galleries like exams at a driving school. We will still stand unprepared in front of every new painting, as we did eleven years ago,” explains Třeštík, why the reissue did not require much editing. “However, this book should help you deal with such a situation with dignity and without losing self-confidence, and take away as much experience as possible from art.”

In The Art of Perceiving Art – Guerrilla Writing About Art, he looks at artworks in an original way, asking himself new questions and giving more new, and above all, understandable answers. All this in a book that fits the bedside table and contains information that requires you to explore the entire library.

“We know the value of a good picture not by comparing it to another good picture, but by comparing it to a bad picture. To know the value, the value is invaluable. Do not avoid bad pictures. The more you see, the better,” says the author.

With dozens of color reproductions of works from antiquity to modern art, the book offers a new look at the art world. Objectively, the successful publications The Art of Perceiving Art for Children and Parents and The Art of Perceiving Architecture for Children and Parents, published in 2019 and 2020, complement thematically.

Teštík adds: “In all three books I have tried to look at the subject in such a way as to make it accessible to anyone without prior ‘professional training’.”
