Description

Published in association with the world-famous National Gallery of London and using images supplied by them, this book brings together great themes, techniques and artists from the most important periods and movements up to the present day. With simple but not patronizing text, this book provides a sound basis of information for anybody interested in the absorbing world of art. Organized by theme, some of the world's most famous and beautiful works of art are examined in detail: how to look at a painting; the painting of faces; classical art; modern art; the influence of religion on art; the influence of society on art; and war and propaganda.show more
