The latest edition of this breathtaking visual tour of world art
Exploring the development of art from cave painting to abstract art using a truly innovative approach, this beautiful book brings you the very best of world art from cave paintings to Neo-expressionism.
Enjoy iconic must-see works, such as Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper and Monet's Waterlilies and discover less familiar artists and genres from all parts of the globe. Art That Changed the World covers the full sweep of world art, including the Ming era in China, and Japanese, Hindu, and Indigenous Australian art. It analyzes recurring themes such as love and religion, explaining key genres from Romanesque to Conceptual art.
Art That Changed the World explores each artist's key works and vision, showing details of their technique, such as Leonardo's use of light and shade. It tells the story of avant-garde works like Manet's Le Déjeuner sur l'herbe (Lunch on the Grass), which scandalized society, and traces how one genre informed another—showing how the Impressionists were inspired by Gustave Courbet, for example, and how Van Gogh was influenced by Japanese prints.
Lavishly illustrated throughout, look no further for your essential guide to the pantheon of world art.
