About the Author:

Michael Bird is a writer and art historian. His books on modern British art and artists include Sandra Blow (2005), The St Ives Artists: A Biography of Place and Time (2008), and Bryan Wynter (2010). He has published many essays and articles on modern and contemporary art and broadcasts regularly on BBC Radio. He is a visiting lecturer at University College Falmouth.

Review:

"A lively, entertaining examination of the ways that art-making has been re-shaped down the centuries," Michael Glover, 'Books of the Year 2012', The Independent


"One to buy for your roommate, live-in, or spouse, and then read yourself! Even if he or she is already an arty know-it-all, Michael Bird's 100 Ideas That Changed Art will come in handy. ... Ever succinct, Bird gets to the heart of each idea and includes visual aids (check out those for "body as surface" before you gift-wrap)." Elissa Schappell, 'Best Books of the Year', Vanity Fair

Book Description Laurence King Publishing, United Kingdom, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. From the earliest cave paintings through to the internet and street art, this inspiring book chronicles the 100 most influential ideas that have shaped the world of art. Arranged in broadly chronological order, it provides a unique and compelling take on the history of art. The book shows how developments in materials (oil paint, plastics, paint in tubes) and technology (paper, photography, welding) have radically changed the way that art is produced. But these changes run parallel with influences from wider culture such as the study of optics and anatomy and more conceptual concerns such as chance and ephemerality. Each entry explores when an idea first evolved and how it has resurfaced in the work of different artists up to the present day. Lavishly illustrated with historical masterpieces and packed with fascinating contemporary examples, this is an inspirational and wholly original guide to understanding the forces that have shaped world art.
