Overview

Concise Oxford Dictionary of Art and Artists (Oxford Paperback Reference Series) by Ian Chilvers

Based on the acclaimed Oxford Dictionary of Art, this is an authoritative and up-to-date guide to Western art—from ancient Greece to the present day. For this third edition, new entries have been added on younger, contemporary artists such as Damien Hirst, Julian Schnabel, and Rachel Whiteread, and the existing entries have been thoroughly revised and updated. With over 2,500 entries, arranged in A-Z order for ease of reference, this is an ideal book for students and for anyone who enjoys visiting art galleries and exhibitions. There are entries on artists, painting, sculpture, the graphic arts, leading collectors, dealers, and patrons, museums and galleries, and materials and techniques, many enlivened by quotations from artists and critics. The Concise Oxford Dictionary of Art and Artists is an engaging and reliable companion for anyone with an interest in the history of art—from Giotto to Gilbert & George.
