    1. 4 1/2 stars. This is my favorite / most useful art reference book. As well as being loaded with over 1000 beautiful prints it covers off art history nicely; each chapter begins with a review of the major events that had an impact on the art world. It’s broken down by century from the 13th through to the 20th. Published in 2006 it’s admittedly pretty light on newer works. Includes short concise biographies on the more important artists. Read this book and you’ll never again be stumped when [...]

    2. Huge collection of paintings starting from early Renaissance and a couple of mini biographies of the most famous artists. Higly recommended for art lovers.
