Comment: PROFESSIONAL SELLER SHIPPING TOP QUALITY BOOKS WITHIN 24 HOURS.100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE Well-loved but cared for, and still very readable. The previous owner has certainly very much enjoyed reading this book more than once, therefore please be aware there will be some creasing on the spine or slight shelf wear. If it's been in their collection for some time, say years old or more, some pages might be discoloured and there may be other minor age blemishes, but that won't affect its readability. Shipped from the heart of the British countryside this book will leave our library within a day or two of your order and be with you shortly thereafter.

Product description


The history of Western European painting, explored through some of the world's most famous pictures. Each chapter of this book looks at an important aspect of the study of art, including the use of light, perspective, painting portraits, symbols in art, materials and techniques. The work of artists from Uccello to Picasso is presented chronologically within each chapter, giving a mini-history of European painting. Full page pictures and carefully chosen details are designed to inform young readers as well as to capture the eye and imagination. The National Gallery holds one of Britain's most well-known collections of European paintings. This book makes the collection accessible, not just to those who visit the gallery, but to all those who visit local galleries, study art at school or come across these famous paintings as posters or prints.
