About this title


More than four hundred full-color illustrations capture the distinctive artistic styles and techniques of some of the world's greatest artists, from the early Renaissance to the present day.

Book Description:

Painting technique is a relatively neglected aspect of art history, although technique is vitally important in the development of painting styles and movements. In this volume, the techniques of 77 of the world's greatest painters are examined in over 100 of their finest paintings. This comprehensive study shows the development of technique from the frescoes of Giotto to the acrylic paintings of David Hockney, revealing the extent to which changes of technique and the evolution of artist's material went hand in hand.

Some of the unique features of the book are:
-- A concise description of the career and general technique of the artist
-- Actual size details indicating the scale of the work
-- Diagrams showing the unpainted blank surface and subsequent sizing stages
-- Illustrations demonstrating the underdrawing of the work
-- Reproductions of the whole painting and a series of details
-- Extensive captions to explain the relevance of each detail

This book, compiled withthe aid of a team of 14 technical consultants, experienced as either picture conservators or art historians, is an invaluable tool for the appreciation and understanding of the great paintings of the past and the present.
