"Offers a great insight into sources of [Sasnal's] inspirations and fields of interest: painting about painting, figurative painting and portraits, the history of Poland and travel shots... The book itself is a journey full of facts and intriguing perspectives on materiality and subject matter of Sasnal's paintings and his way of deconstructing the different symptoms of current times... Jam-packed with fascinating personal stories and facts from the artist's life. It also provides an insightful view of historical and contemporary perspectives on painting in pre- and post-Iron Curtain Poland. The juiciness and meatiness of Sasnal's works is successfully explored with reference to historical lineage, which is timely and culturally valuable."―Cassone

"A unique series of informative monographs on individual artists."―The Sunday Times

"Gives the reader the impression of a personal encounter with the artists. Apart from the writing which is lucid and illuminating, it is undoubtedly the wealth of lavish illustrations which makes looking at these books a satisfying entertainment."―The Art Book
