100 Great Artists
A Visual Journey from Fra Angelico to Andy Warhol
Arcturus Publishing Limited
April 2020 marks 500 years since Raphael's death, who is featured in this book.
This book showcases, in full color, the works of one hundred painters who represent eight centuries of the European tradition: from Giotto in the 13th century to Hockney in the 21st.
Arranged alphabetically for easy reference, each artist occupies a double-page spread that contains a selection of pictures, accessible text and a biographical timeline.
The secrets of the masterpieces revealed: does Van Eyck's Arnolfini Marriage portray a secret sadness? What political purpose did Rubens' fat, rosy models serve? And did Seurat's pointillist experiment really work?
