Author Info
John Richardson
John Richardson was born in 1924. He studied art at the Slade School but soon gave up painting for art criticism. In 1949 he moved to Provence, where he helped the collector Douglas Cooper transform the Ch?teau de Castille near Avignon into a private museum of cubist painting. For the next twelve years he lived in France where he became friends with Picasso, Braque, L?ger, and Cocteau. With Picasso's encouragement he embarked on an analytic study of the artist's portraits. In the early 1960s Richardson went to live in New York City where he was appointed head ofChristie's U.S. operation. Besides having organized various exhibitions, he has written books on Manet and Braque and is a contributor to "The New York Review of Books", "The New Yorker" and "Vanity Fair". The first volume of his "Life of Picasso" was published to wide acclaim in 1991 and won England's prestigious Whitbread Prize. In 1993 he was made a Corresponding Fellow of the British Academy. In 1994-95 he served as the Slade Professor of Art at Oxford University. Currently he divides his time between Connecticut and New York City.
From the Publisher
Editors Note Meet John Richardson, a typical weekend golfer who enjoys the game but can'tbreak 100. But Richardson differs from the average 24-handicapper in one crucialway. He's determined to break par within a year at the local golf course whileworking in a demanding full-time job and trying his best to remain a good husbandand father. Famed Scottish golfer/commentator Sam Torrance advises Johnto ?dream on? and PGA Tour pro Darren Clarke tells him that three years wouldbe a more realistic time frame. Dream On is the hilarious and inspiring story ofhow John achieved the seemingly impossible?from how the initial challengetook shape to that glorious day, less than one year later, when he broke par andplayed the best round of his life.
Editors Note 1 The author describes his life and his determination to meet the demands of being a good father, run a business, and break par in golf within a year.
