The Emirates through the Eyes of an Artist
Trevor Waugh
AED 145.00

There can be no better way to seeing the United Arab Emirates than by studying an artist's journals and famed British artist Trevor Waugh takes a journal or sketchbook with him wherever he goes. The Emirates through the Eyes of an Artist has been faithfully reproduced as a facsimile of one of Waugh's journals, using paintings from his real journals and others prepared especially for this work. It takes the reader on a unique journey through the UAE, an odyssey that is as exciting as it is enchanting. A brilliant work from a talented and perceptive artist. The result is much more than an intriguing book – it's an intimate and colourful view of the Emirates through the eyes of an artist.
