Summary The Art Book New Edition presents 100 new artists, including for the first time Photographers and Performance Artists. Following the successful format of the original the new edition is an A-Z guide to 600 great artists from medieval to modern times, it debunks art-historical classifications by throwing together brilliant examples of all periods, schools, visions and techniques. Each artist is represented by a full-page colour plate of a definitive work, accompanied by explanatory and illuminating information on the image and its creator. Glossaries of artistic movements and technical terms are included, making this a valuable work of reference as well as a feast for the eyes.
