Review: ""Like Theseus's string guiding him the Minotaur's labyrinth, "Art in Time" leads the reader through the most important styles, schools and movements from art history, and how each movement built upon its predecessor. Understand how the disobediences of the day impacted on the world of art." - Vanity Fair"Beautifully produced. . . An absorbing and enlightening gallop through art. The careful balance of digestible chunks of information with beautiful images makes this equally rewarding as a dip-into coffee table book or a cover to cover read." - Royal Academy of Arts Magazine"
