Art for BeginnersBook - 2000
Understanding art means understanding the way images shape our views of ourselves and of the world. Art for Beginners discusses artwork as a record of everyday life, historic events, and the imagination. It introduces readers to individual artists, various genres, specific uses of materials, and theories of composition. The closing pages address art's role as a commodity in consumer culture, and a glossary defines key movements, techniques, and styles.
