Painters: Masters of Western Art (Fandex Family Field Guides)
Synopses & Reviews
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.
Each Fandex Family Field Guide is a hand-held deck of knowledge that contains 50 individually die-cut cards hinged together. Fandex Painters is a short course in Western art. From Giotto, who revolutionized painting by giving his figures three-dimensionality, to Andy Warhol and his famous soup cans, it's an artist-by-artist chronology. Featuring portraits, self-portraits and photographs, paintings and details, it brings art's evolution to your fingertips.
Also in the series: Mythology, Birds, 50 States, Civil War, Cats, Dogs, Presidents, Trees, Wildflowers, Composers, Mummies, Explorers, The Body, Shakespeare, and Bible.
This hinged deck of 50 die-cut cards acts as a visual primer of great artists and their paintings. Provides an ideal introduction to the masters, from Van Gogh to Andy Warhol, in a artist-by-artist chronological format that features portraits, self-portraits, photos, paintings, and details. Full-color illustrations. Consumable.
