Description: An original and beautiful perspective on how art developed through the ages, The Story of Painting reveals how new materials, techniques, and ideas inspired artists to innovate and create their greatest works.

From the first pigments and frescos to linear perspective in Renaissance paintings, the influence of photography, Impressionism, and the birth of modern art, The Story of Painting follows each step in the evolution of painting over the last 25,000 years, from the first cave paintings to the abstract works of the last 150 years.

Immerse yourself in this book and find yourself dazzled by new colours; marvel at the magic of perspective; wonder at glowing depictions of fabric and flesh; understand cubism; and embrace abstraction: it will transform your understanding and enjoyment of paintings.
