The Encyclopedia of Visual Art

It was an enormous privilege to be given the task of Project Editor for this equally enormous new encyclopedia. My small, hand-picked Oxford-based team spent five years with it, supported by Elsevier and our marvellous editorial board of art specialists. There is nothing I love more than a challenge – and this certainly qualified. When both Macmillan and Encyclopedia Britannica bought it on completion, we all knew it had been time extremely well spent.
