"When you visit an art exhibition, do you spend a lot of time deciphering the wall labels? When you go to a museum, are there some galleries you simply avoid, because the art on display is 'all Greek' to you? When you try to 'talk the talk' with other viewers, do you flounder?" "If any of the above describes you - or if you're a knowledgeable art lover trying to fill in a few blanks in your education or keep a vast amount of information at your fingertips then you need ART, a lively, concise, but authoritative guide to the creators, the stories, and the techniques that have made the art of painting one of the glories of Western civilization."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
