50 Artists You Should Know,
This review is from: 50 Artists You Should Know: From Giotto to Warhol (50 You Should Know) (Paperback)
A lovely book with some lovely examples of art work and the timelines were excellent to give an apreciation of their time in history. Some of the choices for the most important 50 were a little unexpected. I would have liked to have seen Gaugan, Rousseau, Degas and Delacroix amongst the list and also Vetriano. However I would recommend the book as a starting point to get an apreciation of art and to recognise different works. I bought it for my children so that they could find out a bit more about the artists of popular pictures that they had come across.
