Splat! The Most Exciting Artists of All Time by Mary Richards (Thames and Hudson)
Posted by ReadItDaddy at 9:30 AM Labels: Mary Richards, Splat, Thames and Hudson, The Most Exciting Artists of All Time
"Splat! The Most Exciting Artists of All Time" gathers together the talented individuals whose works have become legend, and of course their most celebrated paintings, drawings and sculptures.
The book starts out with a fascinating timeline that sets the tone for the rest of this packed volume, exploring all aspects of art and design over the last five centuries and way way back to the beginning of time, examining the ways ancient beings made their first marks on the walls of caves.
Famous artists themselves take centre stage, as this book examines their lives and the times they lived in. Often tempestuous and passionate artists have equally turbulent lives, so the book thoughtfully gathers together the life history of artists in a child-friendly way.
