Much more than a basic history of art, this fascinating book will teach you how colour works, how to have a profound experience in an art gallery, and where to see the best art in the world. Packed with intriguing and playful images, Cool Art is the ideal gift for all ages - not only will it engage children and teens in creative ideas, it will provide a feast of useful facts for adults to impress their friends with at dinner parties. From Caravaggio to Banksy, the Renaissance to Minimalism, explore the ideas, meaning and techniques behind the world's masterpieces, with a hefty dose of fun along the way.
