Description from dust jacket
This is a free-ranging Gibbings book, made doubly delightful by the addition not only of his famous, beautiful engravings but also full color reproductions of the paintings which he made on his journeys. From the magic, legend-laden Ile de Re in the Bay of Biscay, to lovely Venice; from picturesque Positano south of Naples, to that mecca of all artists, Paris; Robert Gibbings makes you see Italy and France through a painter’s eyes – a painter whose response to color and line in matched by his vast human curiosity and Irish love of wit and a good story.
