Originally published in 1938 when Kenneth Clark was director of the National Gallery, London, this book presents Clark's favorite details from paintings in the museum's collection. Newly updated and handsomely illustrated, this landmark book juxtaposes pairs of details rarely viewed together----such as cupids from Velazquez's Rokeby Venus and Correggio's The School of Love----to illuminate fascinating analogies and contrasts between paintings and artists. Clark's erudite but accessible responses to these works are broad in scope and approach, and range from a few lines to an entire history of the still life. Featuring all new color reproductions, One Hundred Details serves as an introduction to art history and offers a unique and intimate look at these paintings through the discerning eye of a world-renowned art historian and director.
