This review is from: Dalí: The Paintings (Hardcover)
The book is on the smallish size but for the money definitely worth it. A few pictures on each page or one picture and text per page.

5.0 out of 5 stars Francis Bacon, 21 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good size and quality of the photos (personally I am not a big fan of presentation on a double page) very insightful and concise details from Bacon's artistic life.

4.0 out of 5 stars O'Keefe (TaschenBasic Art Series), 16 Dec. 2011
This book presents an overview of artist O'Keefe. There is a a few quality photos and insights about development of artist's style but seems short on biography.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intro to life of Rivera, 12 Sept. 2011
Great book with excellent pictures. This book covers all parts of Rivera' life and gives great introduction to artist' painting development. Rivera's cubist part of development is presented shortly and his mural paintings and late works are covering most of the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chagall's Colour and Mistakes in Trade, 1 Jan. 2010
To read about Chagall is to learn about artist mistakes in trade. Everyone is been taken for a ride but in Chagall's case it was more than once. His story is sad and adventurous. I would recommend this book to everyone who is interested to learn about life of most artists. Many excellent illustrations and some on double page spread. Must buy if interested to learn about colour.
