A Visual HistoryBook - 2015
"A comprehensive guide to artists, themes, paintings, techniques, subjects, and stories, covering every era from early art to the modern day" (Back cover). In the introduction, the author writes that he hopes this book "will prove to be a friendly companion, as well as an entertaining and practical aid for looking at art...It should also encourage you to believe what you see, rather than what you are told, and make you go back to a painting or sculpture and see aspects of it you had not perceived before. My first wish is to increase the pleasure you get when looking at a work of art."
