Tue–Fri 10–6, Sat 11–4 t 020 7499 9494 t @HamiltonsGall f Hamiltons Gallery The Art of Rivalry by Sebastian Smee, Profile Books £16.99 This book is at its best when analysing physical works ofart, though it makes a convincing case that many ofthose discussed are the result of emotional, creative tensions. The book examines relationships between Freud and Bacon, Manet and Degas, Matisse and Picasso, Pollock and de BOOK review Kooning, tracking the creative energies and resentment. Despite the expanse ofyears covered and shifts within the tales ofeach pair, Smee builds up a clear picture ofModernism as a coherent movement. Sensitively and authoritatively delivered, this is a clear account ofwhy artistic relationships, which were so often destructive, were crucial for these painters of modern life. Frances Allitt
