Art Essentials: Key Moments in Art
Spanning the last 500 years of art history, this book revisits fifty momentous events that changed the course of art.
In Key Moments in Art, chance meetings spur artists to create exciting new styles such as Impressionism or Cubism, landmark performances take place, and revolutionary exhibitions open. The book also looks at fights, lawsuits, auctions, and crime–from the theft of the Mona Lisa to the day van Gogh’s Sunflowers become the most expensive painting ever sold.
