DescriptionsEdit Descriptions

Taschen Basic Art is a best selling art collection books, published by Taschen. Each book looks at a different artist, with a biography, and illustrations of their work. The books were originally published as large, A4 books, but were later published (and still are) as smaller books. New titles are published regularly. A similar series entitled Taschen Basic Architecture, Taschen Basic Cinema and Taschen Basic Photographies was started after the success of the Basic Art series. In the spring of 2014, Taschen's Basic Art series received major criticism in Swedish media for its focus on male artists. The series then consisted of 95 books, only five of which were of female artists. The artists Ditte Ejlerskov and EvaMarie Lindahl highlighted the disparity with an art installation at Malmö Konsthall in Sweden

Born back in 1985, the Basic Art Series has evolved into the best-selling art book collection ever published. Each book in TASCHEN’s Basic Architecture series features: an introduction to the life and work of the architect, the major works in chronological order, information about the clients, architectural preconditions as well as construction problems and resolutions, a list of all the selected works and a map indicating the locations of the best and most famous buildings, approximately 120 illustrations (photographs, sketches, drafts, and plans) (English, Unclassified)
