From the great artists of the Renaissance - Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael and Titian - to Rembrandt and Vermeer, the masters of the Dutch Golden Age, and from the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists - Manet, Degas, Cezanne, Monet, Rodin and van Gogh - to Rothko, Pollock, Lichtenstein and Warhol, the pioneers of Abstract Impressionism and Pop Art, each artist featured in this book has changed how the world has been seen and represented through their unparalleled imagination, skill and creative genius.
In a series of succinct and insightful profiles, Susie Hodge assesses the work of each artist and their contribution to the history of art. Each biography is accompanied by a superb reproduction of a major artwork by the artist as well as a list of key works and details of where they can be seen. Arranged chronologically, the book also contains a series of accessible essays that explain the most important art movements and place each artist within a broad historical and cultural context.
