"In this beautifully illustrated book, both delightfully opinionated and provocative, Davies reflects on his life's work with disarming candor, self-deprecating humor, and with illuminating insights specific to the paintings depicted. His stylistic choices and his artistic credo are revealing. Refreshingly interspersed throughout, are irrelevant references to historic icons of the art world from Michelangelo to Van Gogh to Francis Bacon.
The book generously and elegantly reproduces the paintings with exactitude and clarity. There is ample evidence, here, to support Davies's current status as a master of American realistic painting".
