Description

Discover the history of art movements from classical Greek art to the Italian Renaissance, the pre-raphaelites, and the masters of impressionism with this bestselling DK visual guide.

Truly comprehensive in scope, this bestselling book explores masterpieces by more than 700 artists, including Leonardo da Vinci, Picasso, and Van Gogh. An invaluable art lover's reference book, it showcases everything from Italian baroque painting and African Art to contemporary art history.

Each artistic movement is clearly explained, with descriptions of origins and influences, characteristic styles and techniques, and typical subjects. A visual timeline of key works gives an overview of the scope of each major movement.
Bold graphics, overlays, and detailed closeups show you how to "read" composition and subject matter, and explain the techniques and methods the artists used to create their masterpieces.

Created in collaboration with Bridgeman, the largest art library in the world, Art: The Definitive Visual Guide is a must-have for your bookshelf.
