This indispensable, popular art book provides a comprehensive guide to 386 of the world's best known artists from medieval times to the present day. Arranged in alphabetical order by artist, each spread contains important biographical details alongside a full-colour illustration of one of the artist's best-known works. In providing an international look at the world of art, this book gives a unique insight into the glorious mix of styles and movements that make up the great traditions in Western art. Each spread reflects artistic variety and freshness, with Renaissance masterpieces rubbing shoulders with cool neo-classicism, or fiery Romantic brilliance nestling next to a tranquil Impressionist scene or a striking contemporary portrait. The A-Z of Art, with its informed commentary and fresh approach, should excite enthusiasts as well as those looking to improve their knowledge of the visual arts.
