Description

With stunning full-colour reproductions and extensive biographies, GREAT MODERN MASTERS presents with vivid immediacy the towering innovators who changed the art of painting and the public perception of art. From Turner to Picasso, each of these masters of modern painting has had an immeasurable influence on modern art, through the movements of Impressionism, Cubism and Fauvism as well as through their own individual styles. They shocked the public in their day with their innovative means of expression; today we admire these once controversial works of art and their makers, who laid the basis of twentieth-century art and gave rise to a new spirit of creative freedom.

Review quote

'An absolute treasure trove, this deceptively small, beautifully crafted handbook contains a wealth of rich artistic material. Comprehensive biograpies and descriptions accompany splendid full-colour reproductions from the moody scenes painted by Turner through to the angular imagery of Picasso's art. A charming and informative volume' - GOOD BOOK GUIDEshow more
