📝The Story of Art Book Synopsis : "The Story of Art is one of the most famous and popular books on art ever published. For 45 years it has remained unrivalled as an introduction to the whole subject, from the earliest cave paintings to the experimental art of today. Readers of all ages and backgrounds throughout the world have found in Professor Gombrich a true master, who combines knowledge and wisdom with a unique gift for communicating directly his own deep love of the works of art he describes." "The Story of Art owes its lasting popularity to the directness and simplicity of the writing, and also the author's skill in presenting a clear narrative. He describes his aim as 'to bring some intelligible order into the wealth of names, periods and styles which crowd the pages of more ambitious works', and using his insight into the psychology of the visual arts, he makes us see the history of art as 'a continuous weaving and changing of traditions in which each work refers to the past and points to the future, a living chain that still links our own time with the Pyramid age'. In its new format, the 16th edition of this classic work is set to continue its triumphant progress for future generations and to remain the first choice for all newcomers to art."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

📒For The Sake Of Art ✍ Cynthia Mines
📝For the Sake of Art Book Synopsis : In the early decades of the 20th century, the small Kansas community of McPherson experienced such a renaissance of art and culture that the prestigious International Studio magazine proclaimed that per-capita art ownership there was higher than anywhere in the world. The man behind the movement was Carl Smalley, the son of a seed store owner whose passion for original art was fueled by a visit to the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis. At the heart of the art oasis on the prairie was a friendship between Smalley and artist Birger Sandzen. Their collegial enthusiasm was the backbone of annual exhibitions that attracted more than half the population to see works by artists such as Rembrandt, Whistler, Manet, Joseph Pennell, Gustave Baumann, Robert Henri, George Bellows, Thomas Hart Benton and members of the Prairie Print Makers. School children and graduating classes collected money to buy original art, and the seeds sowed during that era can still be seen on the walls of the McPherson public schools as well as museums, colleges, office buildings, libraries and private collections.

Does this modernization threaten to undermine the world of art as we know it, or is this just another example of a global market demanding a certain product? And where are the artists in all this?

Now, award-winning illustrator Javaka Steptoe's vivid text and bold artwork echoing Basquiat's own introduce young readers to the powerful message and art doesn't always have to be neat or clean--and definitely not inside the lines--to be beautiful.
