Andrew Graham-Dixon: Art The Definitive Visual Guide

READ BOOK Art The Definitive Visual Guide AUTHOR Andrew Graham–Dixon –

Ven what the book is trying to do Sometimes the layout is bad and they could definitely have expanded the reproductions But a decent amount of stuff is decent sized and there were only a few bits where it really bothered me Still a magnifying glass would probably be helpfulMostly western art as I said Only a few spreads of art outside Europethen the US Not surprising and obviously there s space reasons for not going too wide but still it s a big omission They do at least try and they have some stuff on like Chinese ink painting though so it s better than somePoororientalistsilly art criticismbad politics A lot of this is just normal stuff really and I m only complaining cause I m critical of a lot of these mainstream ideas But one thing that struck me is this primitivist garbage label especially to describe a trained artist who imitates primitive art who had a 14 year old Tahitian mistress who he painted in a sexual way and they didn t pass comment on it at all just acted as if that s totally ok Grossed me out but that seems the normal way of talking about this disgusting child abuser because hey he did good art Ugh I ll also note that the modern art descriptions and stuff are often absolutely laughable but tbh I hate a lot of the modern art stuff they have in this book so I guess I would say thatBut overall it s good Beautiful and comprehensive very well organizedits pages convey than just a history of art but also chronicle the journey of human history I read this book cover to cover I wouldn t recommend it That said this is an excellent and ick reference book If you ever just feel the need to look at art this is the book to pick p the photography is crisp and the art chosen is encyclopedic in its range I got this book for Christmas from my sister and nephew It means so much that she went in search of it for me The text is informative and the illustration.

S bring back memories of my trips to different museums It also inspires me to see art in the world and arms me with knowledge with which to view these works WOW I love this book It s beautiful the photographs are beautiful and clear The breadth of material is astounding covering artists I d never heard of in all my art history classes This book is not a specialized look at one particular period or a handful of canonized artists but devotes a good amount of space to artists we are not as familiar with placed in context with other artists and works we are familiar with I barely scratched the surface in the time I had this from the library and I could sit for an hour or just reading and examining the photographs This is well worth the investment to purchase whether to supplement your child s institutional schooling or if you are homeschoolingNote to parents As with any art book you will want to examine this before sharing with your kids if you are concerned about exposing your children to nudity It does include nudes and not all innocent ones either 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 suished 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 suare 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 Awfu.
