4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but querky 7 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm not an 'arty' person, so this purchase was for information rather than enjoyment. This book, though, is interesting, very informative and full of those facts we know but have misplaced somewhere. I like it lots.

This book is an amazingly detailed snapshot of the world's greatest artists. The presentation of each subject is concise and follows a defined pattern covering lifestyle, skills, historical background, relationships etc. Each artist is placed in his time frame and how he fitted in to his contemporaries. The book is incredibly comprehensive considering the limited number of pages allocated to each subject (three or four) and the amount of information presented to the reader points to a dedicated amount of research. I recommend this book to Art students not only for the subject detail but for the simple guidelines for finding the whereabouts of each artist's finest pictures. This is more than an instructional volume. I found it entertaining and would have awarded five stars except for the poor quality of the illustrations.
