The Story of Art

£12.99

Product description

Published 1960.

Unclipped jacket has some wear to edges and a couple of tears at top of spine. Previous owner has written name on front end papers.

Here is a vivid and lucid picture of a complex but fascinating story - that of art as a coherent and intelligible epic of human endeavour. The newcomer to the field will find in it an easy and stimulating introduction to the great periods of our artistic heritage. The art lover may experience the even greater joy of rediscovering the world's great masterpieces, which had threatened to become stale through over-familiarity, and of seeing their favourite buildings and paintings in a fresh and unexpected historical perspective.
