The World of Art by Sandra Forty

Large hardback, 2000, 512pages, very good condition

More than 500 large-size photographs of paintings, chronologically arranged, provide a journey through Western art, from the Gothic to the Renaissance to Neo-Classicism. Full-color.

To give an impression of the way that styles have changed, 'The World of Art' is ordered chronologically. Displaying the paintings by date provides the reader an impression of when the great artists were working as well as the way that the art has changed over the years, in both subject matter and style. Over four hundred and fifty pages of magnificent full color images allow this journey through the movements and great names of Western painting - from the religious works of Cimabue and Giotto to such oddities of the twentieth-century art as Fauvism, Vorticism, or Action painting. Great art is not merely a matter of brilliant technique, wonderful composition, or groundbreaking theory - plenty of artists have had one or more of these attributes but not been judged 'great'.
