World\'s Most Influential Painters and the Artists They Inspired: Stories and Hidden Connections Between Great Works of Western Art

    By

    This fascinating book examines more than 50 extraordinary artists who have established or redefined movements and traditions, from Giotto and the beginnings of naturalism to the elegant realism of Van Dyck; from Monet's Impressionist watercolours to Warhol's bold pop art. Each entry provides an account of the artist's inspirations, from contemporaries to cultural and political influences. Key works are examined in detail, considering defining characteristics and lasting impact on future artists. A selection of 'family trees' reveal connections between artists of different centuries and movements.
