About this Item

Full conseptual title reads: Painting Color History : Modern Painting : An Historical Conspectus of the Great Schools of Painting and the Chief Art Movements Past and Present : 200 Large Full Color Plates : a Reliable Guide A Comprehensive Chronological lay out presenting the most significant works in their historical sequence year by year. This is more than an art book it is like a machine for traveling in time. One of its innovations , the use of folde pages, enables the reader to see, without any interruption in the text describing an art movement, what other artists were doing at the same time in other fields when it was in full activitiy. By comparing pictures made at the same date, we resuscitate the life of painting, year by eventful year, during seven momentous decades of art history. Thus the various stages in the evolution of modern art are clearly indicated; how, in deed, can we better understand the circumstances of giving rise to the Fauve and Cubist movements than by seeing those very works by Van Gogh and Cezanne which the young Fauves and Cubists to be saw some fifty years ago. In this volume and in its wholly original presentaion of the subject, we give the reader more than just another art book, rather a Proustian remembrance of things past. Oversized tome, thick folio of master works. Quality Hardback : hard cover edition in Very Good condition, some slight wear to edges, as normal for age of book; and in a Good Dust Jacket with some egdewear and slight chipping, and some clear tape repairs, nicely done. Excellent read. A good book to enjoy and keep on hand. Or would make a great GIFT IDEA for the fan / reader in your life. Part of a series by Skira in presenting modern art in a new and real way.
