LoveReading View on Book of Famous Artists

This book tells the story, both lives and works, of 35 of the world's most famous artists, including van Gogh, Monet, Picasso, Dali, Pollock and Warhol. It includes reproductions of the artists' creations, as well as photographs of the artists at work, their personal belongings, homes and places that were important to them. Over the centuries, all kinds of artists have been admired and celebrated for many different reasons.  For many they were unappreciated during their own lifetimes, becoming famous only after their deaths.  Others have gained notoriety for the way they lived, as much as for their art, whilst others have shunned the publicity and let their art do the talking.  With timelines for each artist showing clearly the key highlights of their life it is a wonderful compendium to enthuse budding artists into discovering more about some of the most famous artists who have gone before.
