In The A-Z of Art you will discover a superb collection of paintings and other works from old and modern masters. Together they illustrate a brilliant range of styles and media, from all over the world and from every movement and era. This stunning art book provides a guide to 386 of the world's greatest artists and includes works from medieval times to the present day. Each artist is represented by a full-colour image of one of their most significant or interesting works and a stimulating and informative piece of text. As you turn the pages you will experience the incredible range of artistic variety, with the rich colours of a Renaissance masterpiece rubbing shoulders with a cool neo-Classical painting, or a serene Impressionist work nestling alongside a striking modern portrait. Among the great names you will find here are: Botticelli, Degas, Durer Manet, Michelangelo, Monet, Picasso, Rembrandt, Titian and Van Gogh.
