Review quote

"The Phaidon Colour Library Series provides an invaluable introduction to key artists and movements in art history. Available in paperback format, each volume contains 50 whole-page colour plates and helpful accompanying notes." Art & Craft "Gill Polonsky's large-format book - with 48 well-chosen images - This book gives real value for money." Jewish Chonicle on Chagall "Polonsky provides a fluently written and informative introduction which sets Chagall in a socio-historical and art-historical setting." The Art Book on Chagall " - an introductory volume following an established and successful formula, with a sound, eminently clear, straightforward text. Chagall without tears." Art Review on Chagall " An ideal introduction to the gentle world of this subtle and homely painter." Sunday Telegraph on Chardin "Even if you have read the book, flicked through the mags, been to the movies and think you've seen it all, there is a freshness about this material and its presentation." The Herald on Chardin "More than twenty years ago Phaidon published their first popular monograph on Monet in the Colour Library series. It has been so successful that a reissue of the third edition has now been published. John House follows the traditional format for this series, an introductory essay, short discussions on individual paintings, a bibliography and a listing of the illustrations at the end. - All school and college libraries should have it." The Art Book on Monetshow more
