'1,000 beautiful plates ... illustrate such a variety of objects that even the most erudite reader is bound to find something new.' The Sunday Telegraph 'one for the cultured armchair traveller looking for inspiration for future journeys.' The Times 'This enormous tome of encyclopedic proportions is an essential addition to any library.' The Bookseller 'this is a book art-lovers and cultural anthropologists-scholars and laypeople alike-are guaranteed to cherish.' Publishers WeeklyReseña del editor:
Following on from The Art Book published in 1994, 30,000 Years of Art offers an original and accessible introduction to art for a general readership. Unlike The Art Book, it organises the work in chronological order (rather than alphabetical), it covers all cultures (not only western) and, as the title suggests, it covers 30,000 years of art (rather than art since the Renaissance). The book contains over 1000 works of art from all periods and regions in the world and breaks through the usual geographical and cultural boundaries of art history to celebrate the vast range of human artistry across time and space. Each work is accompanied by key caption information (date, title, place of origin, style or culture, medium, dimensions etc.), and a text that provides more information on the work and its art historical context. The book presents art in a way very different from other art history compendia, revealing the huge diversity, or in many cases, similarity, of man's artistic achievements through time and around the globe. Ordered chronologically, the resulting timeline of works will lead to compelling browsing: surprising juxtapositions will offer intellectual pleasure and a sense of wonder and discovery.
