This is a fascinating book that shatters the notion of all art being pretty or decorative and would be something of a shock to those who buy art to compliment their decor! It reveals the power of art and the rich lives of the artists who produced it. It's in the title folks, this book is about the POWER of art and is a beautiful version of the television series.
It's a big heavy tome and will last many a cold, wintry night. This book brings art to life.

Bought for a friend he did not like it as he watched the programme. I liked it a good reference for me and I know less about the artists I think the reproduction of the pictures is very good quality and the span of the work good. I got it back so I am happy.
Obviously you have to get over Simon's style which is a bit know it all..but hey ho its readable.

Very good series, very good book to accompany it. Schama's art history is as insightful as his history.

The book is in good conditions and was nicely raped. In brown paper, rather then a box. And once the package was actually sent it came very quickly.
However when the arrival date came the package had not been send. I have sent two emails to the sender and received no reply. I received an email from amazon saying they were getting in contact with the sender. Soon after the package was dissipated. I would never use this seller again and recommend that others do the same.
