A throroughly absorbing read,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Story of Art (Paperback)
I wanted to find out more about Art and this book was recommended to me by an expert guide in the National Gallery. I finally got it as a present this Christmas. I had intended to skip the "early stuff" but found myself unable to do so by the quality of writing and the absorbing story. The only drawback is that it's not so easy to carry. All in all a great book - no wonder it has sold over 6m copies since it was originally published in 1950.
