Each region of the world has produced artwork inspired and influenced by nature. Over thousands of years, artists have created millions of images of animals and plants. These may be sculptures, cave paintings, costumes, or other types of image, but they all express the artists' fascination with the living world around them. This book explains how art styles have developed through time, and how artists' techniques add to our understanding of their work. Art is captured in a wide range of media, including photography, painting, sculpture, posters, textiles, and film. The information to help interpret works of art and understand the time in history in which they were created are included in this book.
