The painter Trevor Winkfield--born in Leeds in 1944 and residing in New York City since 1969--has been a sought-after contributor to publications such as "Arts Magazine," "Art in America" and "Modern Painters" for two decades. Editors have long trusted his unique sensibilities and relied on his capacity to usher in fresh understandings of art.

Unapologetically the writings of an artist, not a critic, in "Georges Braque & Others, "Winkfield engages some of the greatest names in art (Vermeer, Chardin, Signac, Ryder, Dadd, Brancusi, Cornell, Duchamp, Johns and of course Braque, among others)--asking questions, seeing the details and sharing the obscure facts that only an artist like Winkfield could notice and convey with such great charm.
