ADVENTURES IN ART by Howard Daniel


Email this review


A Guide to Gallery -Going"" selects some 500 pictures from 19 galleries, seven of which are twelve foreign, in order to represent the best- and most typical- works of art from various schools. 200 of them have small black and white reproductions here to facilitate identification. In the opening chapters, Daniel provides a short history of art from cave painting to Picasso; a definition of the schools, mention of the great examples and exponents, along with short biographies of the artists. There is a glossary of terms at the close, and other useful information-i.e. an introductory section to each museum on location, collections, a chart of hours of admission, etc. All in all, it is a basic background book for the uninformed, with a bibliography for further reading.
