Summary

Critic Reviews

A virtuoso pairing of two global artists who have made homes in the Caribbean: Walcott’s celebratory, limpid poems are each inspired by one of Doig’s painterly, fluid, elusive, enticing paintings, from “The Architect’s House by the Ravine” in 1991 to last year’s hallucinatory self-portait “Night Studio”. A gorgeous, intelligent, romantic, affordable treat.
