About the Author:

Stephen Little is a graduate of the Courtauld Institute. He is currently the editor of the Royal Academy website and he is the frequent contributor to various art journals.

From Booklist:

Art history is divided into schools and movements, or "isms"--a suffix meaning practice or process--from classicism to naturalism to conceptualism, categories even the most informed of art lovers would be hard pressed to list or define. Enter Stephen Little of the Royal Academy of Arts in London and . . .Isms, a welcoming and cogent primer of Western art trends. Little helpfully identifies four types of isms: trends specific to the visual arts (perspectivism), broad cultural trends (romanticism), artist-defined movements (cubism), and retrospectively named movements (mannerism). He then moves forward chronologically, deftly defining more than 50 isms, naming key artists, and showcasing splendid examples. Donna Seaman
