„This book is for all those people who look upon art not knowing what to do with it, but also without being antipathetic to it; the book addresses those people who like to say: „I don’t understand much of it,” at the same time not being aware that one doesn’t need to be a connoisseur to enjoy an art work – all one needs is an open mind,” says Francesco Bonami, a renowned Italian curator, art critic and author of several books. His book „I could have done that too” is translated into Latvian by Dace Meiere.
The book „I could have done that too” is a simple yet comprehensive guide into the world of art. In 33 concise chapters Francesco Bonami offers his own selection of 20th century art and artists.
