Antoine’s Alphabet: Watteau and His World,
“Perl creates an astonishing experience by gathering his reflections on this ‘master of silken surfaces and elusive emotions’ in the form of an alphabet—a fairy tale for adults—giving us a new way to think about art. This brilliant collage of a book is a hunt for the treasure of Watteau’s life and vision that encompasses the glamour and intrigue of eighteenth-century Paris, the riotous history of Harlequin and Pierrot, and the work of such modern giants as Cézanne, Picasso, and Samuel Beckett.”
