This book is a must have for any student of the Arts, or anyone who'd like a wonderful coffee table book. Sections are broken down clearly, and detailed descriptions and explanations are given for each piece. Some history on the artists is also given. It's also full of beautiful pictures that you can just flip through for hours. In addition, it's offered at a fantastic price for such a lovely hard cover (VERY heavy!) book. I'm currently studying Art History, and it's proven invaluable. Highly recommended.

I have been searching for an Art Book, loaded with history and information, for some time, and finally I found it! Beautiful photos, and visual close ups of the art. And detailed histories on the works, and even techniques. Also interesting information on the Artists, genre etc.
A big heavy book, that sits well on the coffee table, and is opened and read a lot. I am thinking that this book would be a great reference to Art students.
A good purchase.

Third time I ordered this book. Ordered it for school libraries where I worked and now for myself. I find it useful to have a resource book on art to refresh my memory and my neighbours in the art studios where I work in Cairo also like to use it. Money well spent.

The title explains it all. Art: The Definitive Visual Guide.
Excellent selection of images and concise written comments.
Articles about what to look for when viewing art are very helpful.
It is the type of book that should be left open on a table for
easy reference.
