Simon Grant is a writer and art historian, and has been the editor of Tate Etc. magazine since 2004. His writings on art include catalogue essays on Paul Nash, Keith Tyson and Tacita Dean, and articles for the Guardian, Times Literary Supplement, the Independent on Sunday, Parkett and The Burlington Magazine.

n My View provides an intimate look at the imaginations of more than seventy-five international artists, all of whom reflect on an artist who has inspired them or influenced their practice. It’s an entirely fresh way of looking at art, unmediated by historians or art critics, and seen instead directly through the eyes of the artists themselves.

In My View features art from the fifteenth to the mid-twentieth century, often supplemented with work by the selecting artists themselves.

Some provide unusual reflections on familiar figures from the past – such as Rachel Whiteread on Piero della Francesca, Chuck Close on Vermeer, or Eija-Liisa Ahtila on Picasso. Some contributors have selected lesser-known artists – from Francesco Clemente on Henry Fuseli to Tomma Abts on Itō Jakuchū – revealing surprisingly strong private passions.

The stories show the challenges, provocations and revelations that can be found when one artist looks closely at the work of another.
