Praise For Mysteries of the Rectangle: Essays on Painting…
"[Hustvedt} gives you the illusion of seeing as if for the ﬁrst time works of art that you thought you knew well. After reading her luminous book, most prose about art seems merely perfunctory. The generous publisher has here provided a beautiful, happily affordable publication." - Modern Painters
"Siri Hustvedt possesses a remarkable visual sensibility. Her responses to paintings are both visceral and intellectual....At their best, her essays combine the insights of her intuitive eye with an extensive knowledge of Western painting." - San Francisco Chronicle
