From the cave paintings of Lascaux, to the Madonnas of the Renaissance Italians, from the revolutionary Impressionists to the provocative canvases of the Pop Art movement—30 Millennia of Painting reunites the essential works of pictorial art, spanning the history of art from prehistory to the present. Featuring a thousand internationally recognizable paintings, these cultural treasures are presented in historical context, along with extended captions and biographies of one hundred of the most influential artists. An artistic, cultural, and educational resource, this book invites us to consider the interaction between history and art, and the influence artists through the ages have had on each other, as well as the future of the discipline. A veritable voyage through time and space, art and history, this guide offers a global vision of the evolution of painting.
