My name is Christopher P Jones, and I’m a writer and artist.

Hello!

Hi, I’m Christopher P Jones. I’m a writer on art and culture, as well as an artist. I’m the author of books about looking at art, including Great Paintings Explained and How to Read Paintings. I try to help people get more from looking at art by delving deep into individual works and exploring the stories behind them.

I’m also a novelist and have recently completed a trilogy of books set in Berlin between 1928 and 1933. The Berlin Tales explore the Roaring Twenties in all their heady and tumultuous glory, with a healthy pinch of mystery and suspense thrown in.

Expanding

I studied Mathematics and Philosophy at university, then a few years later took a Masters in the History of Art.

I’ve since published writing about art and culture, and regularly contribute to art, travel, history and creativity on Medium. My collected Medium articles can be seen at Thinksheet magazine.

If you want to support me, you can sign up for Medium here and I will receive a portion of your membership fee.

Travel

I have been lucky enough to enjoy many travels, including trips across Russia and Siberia, China, Japan, Europe and the USA. Recently I went to the beautiful island of Mauritius. Over the past few years, I’ve also been visiting many of the islands of Greece, and admiring the writings of Lawrence Durrell (Bitter Lemons, Prospero’s Cell) in the process.
