Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

FANDEX brings the world of Western Art to your fingertips with a field guide to painters, their legacies and the often extreme lives they led. A chronology from Giotto, the first modern painter, to Frank Stella, whose black paintings proclaimed "what you see is what you see." Here is Michelangelo, who resented having to paint the Sistine Chapel because it took him away from sculpture. Botticelli and Vermeer, whose work languished in obscurity until the nineteenth century. And Mary Cassatt, the only American to be included with the Impressionists. Illustrating each entry is a portrait of a self-portrait of the artist plus significant paintings and details.

  • 50 INDIDIVIDUALLY DIE-CUT CARDS
  • FULL COLOR THROUGHOUT
  • KNOWLEDGE AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
  • FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY

Synopsis:
