This beautiful book presents the best work of the beloved singer,from pencil sketches on hotel stationery to watercolors, oils and photographs. Introduction by Ralph Sharon, Bennett's long time accompanist. "Tony Bennett is primarily a singer and known to millions in that regard. What is less well known are his gifts as an artist. What My Heart Has Seen presents his best work in nearly every medium, from pencil sketches on hotel stationery to his beloved watercolors and oils, pairing them with photographs from his albums -- and also features his personal recollections of the people and places he has captured on canvas. Tony Bennett's formal art training culminated in a degree from the High School for Industrial Art (New York City). What My Heart Has Seen will reveal to Tony Bennett fans a whole new depth to their matinee idol. His vision and sensitivity as expressed in his artwork is as rich and detailed, warm and unforgettable as the best of his music!" Hand signed by the legendary Bennett. 152 pages.
