Join Miles Champion and Trevor Winkfield for a discussion of the recent publication of Georges Braque and Others: The Selected Art Writings of Trevor Winkfield and How I Became A Painter: Trevor Winkfield in Conversation with Miles Champion."To read one of Trevor Winkfield’s marvelous essays is like strolling through a museum with a witty, erudite, independently minded friend whose sharp, unorthodox observations make you see the art on view in an entirely new light." —Raphael Rubinstein
