    schema:description "The Great Artists introduces readers to 100 of the world's most important artists, from the 13th century to the present, concentrating on their lives, works, ideas, influences, artistic development, contributions, creative output and where they fit in history. Concise and readable, The Great Artists is an interesting, informative and authoritative history of 700 years of fine art for the general reader. Writing with verve and passion, Susie Hodge presents, in chronological order, elegant and often affectionate biographical profiles of 100 of the greatest artists in the history of art. The biographies not only describe the life, development and creations of each artist, but also set these visual composers and their compositions within a broader historical and cultural context. Furthermore, shortlists of 'must-see' masterpieces for each artist give the reader all the information they need to appreciate and understand great art. From the great artists of the high renaissance art to the Dutch maters, and from the rococo and neoclassical movements of the 18th century to romanticism, modernism and contemporary art, the lives of the great artists are as varied and multifaceted as the works of creative genius they produced. A selection of featured artists includes: Mantegna, El Greco, Pissarro, Turner, Seurat, Bellini, Caravaggio, Leighton, Constable, Mucha, Botticelli, Rubens, Manet, Ingres, Klimt, Bosch, Gentileschi, Degas, Gericault, Munch, da Vinci, Poussin, Whistler, Corot, Kandinsky, Grunewald, Velazquez, Homer, Hiroshige, Matisse, Durer, Rembrandt, Cezanne, Delacroix, Mondrian, Michelangelo, Steenwyck, Monet, Millet, Malevich, Raphael, de Hooch, Rodin, Courbet, Klee, Titian, Vermeer, Renoir, Bouguereau, Marc, Holbein, Canaletto, Gauguin, Rossetti, Picasso, Bronzino, Hogarth, van Gogh, Millais, Hopper."@en ;
