Why We Love This

From Ancient Egyptian frescoes to the Renaissance masters, from French Impressionists to American Abstract Expressionists, this highly browsable guide embraces all cultures and every style of painting from 4000 BC to the present. A visually arresting reference for art lovers and students, it provides a truly comprehensive worldwide gazetteer of paintings organized chronologically by date of completion. Each entry includes the history of the painting, information about the artist or artistic movement, the current location of the painting (all are on view to the public), and other details. The works are also indexed by artist and by title, making for easy cross-referencing. Included are popular paintings, paintings that were turning points in the history of art, and rediscovered masterpieces.
