DescriptionGreat art has the power to express emotions, to provoke arguments, to change the way we see the world, or simply to entertain. 501 Great Artists is a comprehensive, single-volume guide to the artists down the centuries who have influenced our world through their art and whose achievements have shaped the course of art history.

Concise and comprehensive, the book is an accessible guide to both major and lesser-known artists from around the world.
