Synopsis

Painters by Carolyn Vaughan

Fandex brings the world of Western art to your fingertips with a field guide to painters, their legacies, and the often-extreme lives they led. A chronology from Giotto, the first modern painter, to Frank Stella, whose black paints proclaimed what you see is what you see. Here is Michelangelo, who resented having to paint the Sistine Chapel because it took him away from sculpture. Botticelli and Vermeer1 whose work languished in obscurity until the nineteenth century. Illustrating each entry is a portrait or self-portrait of the artist, plus significant paints and details.
