BIOGRAPHY

Julian Porter, QC, was called to the Bar in 1964 and appointed Queen's Counsel in 1976. He has practised litigation exclusively since his call and is a specialist in civil litigation and a leading expert in defamation law.

He has a passion for art that began when, as a student, he spent seven years as a tour guide in Europe. Since then he has conducted countless tours of famous galleries in Europe and North America.

His first book, 149 Paintings You Really Need to See in Europe (So You Can Ignore the Others) was published in October, 2013. In February, 2015, he was the guest of honour at a luncheon given by the judges of the Supreme Court of Canada who invited him to talk about his book and some of the paintings in his book. His new book, 149 Paintings You Really Need to See in North America (So You Can Ignore the Others), is co-authored by Stephen Grant. These books describe with entertaining irreverence the best of the best art.
