Julian Barnes (2015 Event)

One of our finest writers, Julian Barnes first wrote about art in his novel A History of the World in 10½ Chapters. Since then, the Man Booker Prize-winning author has written a series of scintillating essays on a range of artists as diverse as Géricault, Cézanne and Lucian Freud. He discusses his ideas and his book Keeping An Eye Open with broadcaster and Royal Academy artistic programmes director Tim Marlow. Recorded live at the Edinburgh International Book Festival.
