Read full description of the books Art: The Definitive Visual Guide:I got this as a Christmas prezzy, oh boy I hope the giver of that gift does not read this review. This is a whopping heavy monster of an art book and really, what is it for? It's a visual guide - I guess that means that they cram in references to every major and most minor painters and sculptors since time began plus many non-Western artists too, refreshingly, so A+ for inclusiveness - BUT everything is squished and rammed and crammed into fun-sized paragraphs and thumbnail illustrations. is there any point in a repro of a giant mannerist painting which would have covered half a wall being reduced to a two inch square? I fear that any young person into whose hands this volume falls (once they've received the appropriate medical attention) would flick through this tome saying yeah, yeah, yeah, okay, tick, tick - done the Renaissance then.
