About this Item

Green buckram with tan backstrip and green lettering. Tips of corners bumped, minor bump to head and heel of spine. Text is clean and bright, no marks. Light foxing to closed outside edges. Unclipped DJ shows small skinned spot to front cover, minor general scuffing and soil. Profusely illustrated throughout with "appropriate" drawings by Campbell Grant. "In this book, the reader is taken from art in Eden to Pop Art, and the art of the future. Along the way the author looks (some will think cross-eyed) at the painting, sculpture, and architecture of the ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans, the Middle Ages, the Italian Renaissance, the Low Countries, Germany, Spain, France, England, and America. Virtually all the great artists and their works, as well as a good many art critics and historians, are given Armour treatment. He also has fun, blending sense and nonsense, with all the isms, including Cubism, Impressionism, Coceptualism, Surrealism, Fauvism, Futurism, Orphism, he coins the word Ismism to include all the isms." (from the jacket). Bookseller Inventory # D61013
