- Out of stock
An accessible new history of painting brought vividly to life by an author with a true painter's eye. With an emphasis on technique, Bryan Banks looks closely at the work of those who altered the landscape of the art world with their brushstrokes - Titian, Chardin, Constable, the Impressionists - weaving together their influences to show how painting developed in a very practical way. From the importance of the painted subject and of the paint itself to the painting of "material things" post-war and the eventual abandonment of paint in favor of "the thing itself," this fascinating book covers a vast time-span and offers an in-depth look at all the masters including Rembrandt, Gainsborough, Cezanne, Matisse, Picasso, Pollock and Rauschenberg.
