about this item

When we look at a painting by Raphael, Rembrandt, or Rubens it speaks to us directly, but it's also an historical document, part of a living world. Martin Kemp takes the reader on an extraordinary trip through art, from devotional works to the revolutionary techniques of the Renaissance, from the courtly Masters of the seventeenth century through to the daringavant-garde of the twentieth century and beyond. Art In History is an indispensable, accessible and richly detailed guide to our culture, our history, our heritage, and our art.

Martin Kemp is emeritus professor of the history of art at Oxford University.
