Gallery Companion

Understanding Western Art

ISBN: 9780500283585 (PB+ - E)

Written in a lively and engaging style, The Gallery Companion includes a Classical section, detailing the characters from the myths and histories of ancient Greece and Rome, and a Biblical and Religious section, describing the figures from the Old and New Testaments as well as later saints. The text supplies the background to the character, lists the most famous paintings that depict him or her, and details the events shown. Other facts, such as why that particular subject was in vogue, are also included, as well as variations and discrepancies between treatments of the same subject matter. The Gallery Companion is a beautifully illustrated guide to over 150 characters commonly represented in the art of the last 600 years. It will be indispensable to all those seeking to enhance their understanding and enjoyment of Western art.
