Best way to start understanding and recognizing art
on 1 April 2010
I have bought this book in a museum in London, initially as a gift but after having a read through it I bought another copy for myself! It's incredibly well written, well organized and i have recommended it and given it as a gift many times. It helps you recognize the main artists that you should know (as the book title indicates) and gives you a nice guideline of what else was happening at the same time.
Absolutely love it! Highly recommended, especially for someone who likes art, would like to know more about it, but doesn't really know where to start!
