About this title


A work of art in itself, this extraordinary book is the first account of the history of art that has been both written and illustrated from an artist s point of view. Originally published as a series in Flash Art magazine, Jori presents art in a way that is both personal and engaging. Beginning with the birth of art itself, the reader experiences art through the early Egyptians and great civilizations of the past to the high art of ancient Greece, the trio of Renaissance masters (Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo), and then to Caravaggio, up to the grand era of nineteenth-century French painting, the groundbreaking works of van Gogh, Gauguin, and Cezanne, and the abstract and deconstructed imagery of Pablo Picasso, which has remained a leitmotif in art. The narrative reaches up to the present day and age, closing with Christo s recent platform stretched over the waters of Lake Iseo in Italy.
