Book description
Kijken naar moderne kunst is een genot. Maar soms laten kijkers zich afschrikken doordat het werk op het eerste gezicht ingewikkeld en ontoegankelijk lijkt. In dit kunstboek bespreekt Jon Thompson meer dan 200 schilderijen en helpt hij de lezer de betekenis ervan te ontsluieren. Hij behandelt werken van de grote en bekende schilders van de 19e en 20e eeuw, vanaf het realisme van Courbet tot en met de graffitikunst van Basquiat. Monet, Ensor, Van Gogh, Picasso, Kahlo, Pollock, Bacon, Warhol en vele anderen passeren de revue: hun levensloop, hun stijl en materiaalgebruik en de betekenis of symboliek van hun schilderijen. Deze sprankelende en informatieve gids is een ideale handleiding voor kunstliefhebbers, een wereldwijde rondleiding langs de hoogtepunten van een van de intrigerendste perioden uit de kunstgeschiedenis.
