Splat! traces art history through its key turning points and helps to map important art movements from the Renaissance and Impressionism to Surrealism and contemporary art. At the beginning, a spread explores how early peoples represented animals and everyday life. Then brief sections explore the stories of particular artists who helped to make important artistic innovations, including Michelangelo and the High Renaissance; Bruegel and his paintings of everyday peasant life; Manet and the shock of Impressionism; and Duchamp and the Dada revolution. Read the real-life stories of artists, such as Caravaggio, Jan Vermeer, Henri Rousseau, Vincent Van Gogh, Wassily Kandinsky and Frida Kahlo, who dared to imagine new ways of depicting the world. The achievements of these artists and the challenges, difficulties and dangers they faced are excitingly brought to life.
