The Whole Picture: The Colonial Story of the Art in Our Museums & Why We Need to Talk about It
by: Alice Procter

In The Whole Picture, art historian and Uncomfortable Art Tour guide Alice Procter provides a manual for deconstructing everything you thought you knew about art, and fills in the blanks with the stories that have been left out of the art history canon for centuries.
