Presenting an entirely new way of looking at art, here is an easy-to-use, informative and fun art book for everyone.

A compilation of the work of 500 artists from the Middle Ages to the 20th century, with each artist represented by a full-page illustration of a key work. Each entry includes a short biography, and a series of chronological charts at the end of the book provides a historical perspective.
