Synopsis: On Writing Art (1990 - 2010) draws together 60 of Sue Hubbard?s essays on contemporary and modern art and spans the last 20 years of her career. A diverse writer, Hubbard?s collected essays are part biographical, part lyrical reviews of today?s program of modern art in Britain and provide an honest account of the diversities, originalities, and disappointments found there. Thick with anecdotes and quotes from historians, artists, and commentators, Hubbard?s writing guides the reader through specific exhibitions as well as the creative lives of her subjects, and provides a context replete with description and art historical value. Her knowledge is incisive and reflective and, in many retrospective cases, reads like a modern obituary. Without dictating, her writing celebrates the lives and contributions of artistic figures from Federico García Lorca and Sam Taylor-Wood to Marc Quinn and Cy Twombly.
Other artists discussed:  Richard Long Diane Arbus Annette Messager Mark Rothko Francis Bacon Gustav Klimt Antony Gormley Andry Goldsworthy Damien Hirst
