Reviews for Collage: The Making of Modern Art
'The fullest and best-written history of the subject so far. It covers a vast amount of ground and reproduces many unfamiliar works ... excellent' - Frank Whitford, The World of Interiors 'Sumptuous ... erudite but never over-scholarly ... a hugely enjoyable trip' - What's On In London
