This is an incredible book. I hadn't thought to look at earlier art from the perspective of "this hasn't been done before" unless it was modern art, where quite obviously a lot of the earlier "rules" were broken. The firsts, and their consequent influences, are briefly and clearly outlined, so the chronology of the chapters does overlap. It made me look at the history of art in a different fashion, and for that I highly recommend it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The reproductions are of good quality, but some are small, so I did enlist the aid of a magnifying glass to discover some of the finer details (a minor quibble - after all, that is usually the case for examining any art reproductions anyway).
