Early in his career, Hoving was introduced to the curators game.

Each week, he and his contemporaries met to examine details of larger museum masterpieces. Whoever correctly identified the detail in context won free coffee: the losers paid.In an imaginative adaptation of this exercise, Hoving introduces us to the challenge and the fun of identifying art, and to the rewards of familiarity with the great works.

A section of paintings accompanied by brief essays introduces a range of artists, themes, techniques, and styles, while progressively demanding clues are provided to help identify visual details in context. No experience is necessary to play this game. Readers at all levels will discover the fun of identifying and remembering great art.
