Synopsis

Look! Seeing the Light in Art by Gillian Wolfe

This exciting art title focuses on how artists use light in their paintings. This book uses some of the most famous and best-loved artists of all time to show how their paintings reflect dramatic light, mysterious light, cold light, hot light, dappled light, rainy light, light patterns, light shapes and other forms of light.

Reviews

An eclectic selection of paintings is brought together from a wide range of genres on the basis of each one's attention to the issue of light. From the dappled impressionistic light of renoir to the heightened contrast of a Frank Hampson Dan Dare frame, each is examined on a facing page through a knowledgeable but unpatronising text. Books for Keeps A fine book that focuses attention on the interesting subject of light and how it is used to great effect by many artists. Accessible to a wide age range. Carousel
