In this sweeping introduction to the great painters of the western canon, Stories of the Painters presents relatively brief biographical sketches of the men who shaped the world of art as it is known today. Each story underscores the style and signature techniques for which the artist was best known, and also provides insight into their upbringing, careers, and even the political climate in which they worked. In all, a wonderful collection of stories about a wonderful collection of painters.
