Publisher Comments:

"Truly fun to read." (Library Journal)

The Penguin Concise Dictionary of Art History has more than 1500 entries on artists and architects from ancient times to the present, setting works, movements, and styles into their cultural contexts. With entries on leading artists, from Alberti to Ingres to Wyeth; on period techniques and terms, from Action Painting to Mezzotint to X-radiography; on significant artistic influences and events, from the Armory Show to Marxism, to the cleaning of the Sistine Chapel, this is the ideal reference for high school and college students, as well as anyone interested in art.

About the Author

Nancy Frazier is a former Newsweek reporter and magazine editor. She has written widely on art and worked with a distinguished panel of advisers for this dictionary.
