Every Object Tells a Story
The exotic, beautiful and curious were brought together from the four quarters of the globe to a selling exhibition in South Kensington (it’s only just closed). Oliver’s eye is as keen as ever, his taste superb, his mind far-ranging. Who else could gather such an astounding Cabinet of Curiosities, from Bactria to C20th American print-making? A follow-up to an exhibition and catalogue of the same name from 2015, this book is beautifully produced, and full of Oliver’s meandering, knowledgeable and humorous captions.
