Synopsis

Awful Art by Michael Cox

First cave-dwellers hid their mammoth doodles in dark, damp caves. Next - you name it, they painted it - from luscious landscapes and mouldy meat to diabolical dream-sequences. Now anything can be art - building bricks, half a cow, even a bin full of rubbish! In this imaginative guide, you'll meet rich artists, poor artists, dead artists and artists who really made an exhibition of themselves. Find out about some forgers and fraudsters who brushed with the law, palette loads of ancient artefacts, and how to create your own priceless masterpiece. PLUS are you the owner of an artistic temperament? If you want to know, get The Knowledge!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
