About this title


It would be hard to overpraise. The result of thirty years of labour, it is a monument of research which traces the whole social history of art from Lascaux and Altamira to the Film Age.

Open it anywhere-- at the Age of Englightenment in Greece, at the Age of the Migrations and the Carolingian Renaissance, at the Concept of the Baroque, at Revolution and Art, or Impressionism, wherever you like -- you are held by the weight of the argument, confident in the immense knowledge of the author. Other books have dealt with portions of this vast subject, but no single book has covered its whole range with such fullness and power |o Scotsman
