By Dr Dave Colton
Anarchy in the Art Gallery is a humorous and thought provoking illustrated book: a re-imagined trip through Western art and cultural history, and one not limited by time or space.
It mixes characters, places, events and situations to create fresh and interesting new possibilities: Lowry paints science fiction, Jane Austin is a cage fighter, Magritte takes his driving test and Anne Hathaway was the real author of Shakespeare's plays.
People, situations and ideas are taken out of context and mixed to create new stories. Two Bruegel peasants steal clocks from a Dali painting, a tourist cycles through Van Gogh's cornfield and Picasso's Demoiselles d'Avignon appear in Monet's waterlily pond.
From art and writing to philosophy and popular culture, this book is a funny, fresh and irreverent journey through our collective cultural past.
