4.0 out of 5 stars Informative, concise and provides a summary of Mythology, 7 Sept. 2001
This review is from: The Story of Painting (Hardcover)
This book is a must for all art history students. It traces the beginnings, through to a brief look at modern art. I am currently studying art history and have found this book, essential to my research on mythology and biblical myths and information. Sister Wendy Beckett suceeds in presenting this book in a clear and non-jargon manner, easily understood and very informative. Selected areas of the book, look at particular paintings and how they are constructed as well as the meanings behind them. The biblical references throughout early paintings are explained fully and i found this especially appealling. This book has certainly helped me, no end in my studies, and look forward to other titles by the author.
