A Short Book About Art by Dana Arnold.
Illuminating and lively, this book provides authoritative answers to the key questions about how art is made, interpreted and displayed. Deliberately avoiding unnecessary jargon, A Short Book About Art offers an unusually accessible route to new ways of thinking about the creative drive of individual artists and their relationships with their work.
It includes fresh comparisons between works of art from different periods and cultures, from cave paintings to contemporary multi-media work. Thought-provoking and stimulating, it is the ideal companion for anyone who wants to learn about art without a dictionary in their hands.
