Mario Naves reviews the book George Braque and Others: The Selected Art Writings of Trevor Winkfield, 1990–2009 published by The Song Cave.
Naves notes that Winkfield is "prone to particular, not to say 'private,' enthusiasms and is keenly attuned to artists who are idiosyncratic or little known. Florine Stettheimer, Gerald Murphy, and Albert Pinkham Ryder are favorites, as is 'the tortoise that wins,' Myron Stout. Have you heard of the seventeenth-century French painter Lubin Baugin? Neither had I, but after reading Winkfield’s thoughts on Baugin’s still-lifes, you’ll want to see them—like, now. Winkfield is a convincing writer, even when he dedicates time to subjects of quizzical merit—not just [Vermeer's] The Allegory of Faith, but Marcel Duchamp, Paul Signac, and Jasper Johns. Winkfield is acute enough in his observations to prompt second thoughts on these and other subjects. Conversational and witty, biting when necessary, and generous when deserving, Winkfield is a rarity: an art critic whose prose is a pleasure to read."
