The major artistic movements
Mannerism, Baroque, Impressionism, Expressionism, Cubism... all artistic movements have in common the commitment of different artists who, together and at a given moment, construct an increasingly new representation of the world and of man.
In this comprehensive and richly illustrated book, you will discover the most important artistic movements that have marked the history of art, from Antiquity to the present day. Learn to recognise their main characteristics, their sources of inspiration, their influence on those who followed them, and understand how the Italian Primitives inspired the Pre-Raphaelites, how abstraction was born as a reaction to figuration, and why Mannerism opposed the classical ideal of the anatomical perfection of man!
Intellectual or sensory, pragmatic or scientific, dreamlike or realistic, art is multiple and changing. This is the eternal adventure that this album of the great artistic currents invites you to share!
