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 (English, Wikipedia)

Born back in 1985, the Basic Art Series has evolved into the best-selling art book collection ever published. (English, Publisher)
