A must read, 1 Feb. 2014
Having decided to improve my knowledge in the history of art, I was recommended this book by a friend. I have since bought 3 additional versions as presents to close family members. It is a must read for anyone interested and starting in the field.
The book is easy to read, the writing style is simple, and the story telling surprisingly good ! You can start at any chapter and follow your tastes and preferences. For example I started at Florence Renaissance, finished the book and then went back to the Egyptian beginnings..
I highly recommend,.
