Overview

Milestones in art—an entertaining visual journey.
• A fresh and unconventional look at the history of art.

• An invitation to rediscover art while training your eye.

• Highly instructive as well as entertaining, lavishly illustrated.

From medieval depictions of saints to Cubism, from lithography to action painting: Time and again, individual artists have taken that first, ingenious step, pointing art in new directions. Giotto, van Eyck, Dürer, Titian, Monet, Kandinsky, Pollock, Baselitz and many others developed new motifs, new techniques and new viewpoints, and in the course of evolving their innovative oeuvres, also changed the way we view the world. Entertainingly written and autifully illustrated, this book provides an unusual look at art history.
