Thirty thousand years of art

Phaidon Books


30,000 YEARS AFART: **This book offers an unusual and exciting way of looking at art. A perfect introduction for those who are new to the subject, as well as an indispensable resource for those who have been studying art for years, 30,000 Years of Art presents, 1000 masterworks from different countries, cultures and civilizations in simple chronological order. From the first accomplished cave paintings made 30,000 years ago to conceptual art of the twentieth century, this book includes acknowledged materpieces, somo lesser-known, and many surprises. With descriptive texts that shed light on why each work is important, what makes it typical of the culture in which it was created and its place in the development of art history, the book offers a brand new perspective on world art. Only here can you easily find what was being created in Japan, Iraq, Peru or Nigeria when the Venus de Milo was being carved in Greece. Only here will you discover that while Diego Velázquez was pinting the monumental royal family portrait Las Meninas, an unnamed artist in India was creating a delicate jade win cup for the Shah who built the Taj Mahal. From the time when human beings can first be called human, they have felt compelled to depict themselves and their world-as gods, mortals, animals or abstractions. 30,000 Years of Art celebrates this rich diversity and shows how art was created across the millennia, and from around the world, fits together**, the editors. 1000 works of art. Timelines. Glossary. Index.
