The Short Story of Art : A Pocket Guide to Key Movements, Works, Themes & Techniques [Paperback]

by Hodge, Susie

  • (0)

The Short Story of Art is a new and innovative introduction to the subject of art. Simply constructed, the book explores 50 key works, from the wall paintings of Lascaux to contemporary installations. Thoughtful design allows easy navigation for the student or art enthusiast through key periods, artists and styles. Accessible and concise, it simplifies and explains the links between the most important and influential concepts in art.

The book explains how, why, and when art changed, who introduced certain things, what they were, where they were produced, and whether they matter. It demystifies artistic jargon, giving readers a thorough understanding and broad enjoyment of art.
