Just how old are the earliest known artworks? When did artists give up egg tempera for oil paint? How is Islamic art related to Hindu art? And why would Van Gogh paint a kimono-clad Japanese woman? From cave paintings to the Renaissance, from Impressionism to pop art, this chunky little book conducts a whistle-stop tour of major art movements, phases, developments, and themes in 200 two-page entries, illustrated with black and white photos and reproductions. Susie Hodge—author of How to Look at Art and How to Survive Modern Art—also introduces artists like Michelangelo and Caravaggio, Velázquez and Rembrandt, Monet and Klimt, Picasso and Warhol.
