This essential work of reference is an exciting introduction to classic masterpieces created over a score of centuries by the world's most innovative painters, sculptors, and artists. Not merely a catalogue of works and artists, this is a true history presented in chronological order. Written by the most authoritative art historians in the field, the comprehensive text reveals much about the culture that produced the works appearing throughout the book. Gallery Studies is a special feature that compares and contrasts specific works produced within one genre or changes in the genre itself (e.g., "The Sphinx in Ancient Egypt," "Chinese Landscape Painting," "Renaissance Armor," or "The Houses of Frank Lloyd Wright"). Close Studies examines individual works as illustrative of a particular period or style. Fully indexed and packed with more than 1,300 illustrations, 854 in color. Publisher description

"This book, which accompanies the first major retrospective exhibition in America of Bacon's paintings since his death in 1992, will give uninhibited voice to the thoughts of three prominent scholars of his art. Art historians Dennis Farr and Sally Yard, and Bacon's friend and biographer Michael Peppiatt discuss their views of the artist's intense and unsettling body of work, introducing a wealth of material that sheds new light on his creative life and working methods. Accompanying the essays are three historic interviews with the artist by Michael Peppiatt. Finally, Dennis Farr provides authoritative and illuminating discussion of each work in the exhibition."--BOOK JACKET
