I was most pleased to recieve this introduction to some of the most famous artists ever. It was easy to read and had exactly the information about these artists that I could digest. Definitely a beginner book but that is where I am at at the moment. I would recommend it to anyone who needs an easy introduction to some of the big artists of our western civilisation.

Very accessable, easy to brows and get into the subject. Context is everything when understanding what makes an artist worthy - and this does a pretty good job of generating interest. Its not intended to be in depth and thorough but most will people like it as an introduction

this was not an expensive book so I guess I could not expect to receive too much in the way of facts and beautiful paintings. however, if one is interested in outline facts about a number of well known artists plus examples of their work, this book is sufficient, but not for anyone who wants to delve further into the history of art and artists.

This is a fabulous reference book, bought for my daughter who is doing GCSE art. We have several books in the "50" series and they are always good. Cleary presented, timelines to show context in terms of world affairs, biographical information, and some useful interesting titbits - such as Turner strapped himself to the mast of a ship in a storm to "capture" the feeling of the storm ...! Great book.
