Body of Art

Серия: "-"

The first book to celebrate the beautiful and provocative ways artists have represented, scrutinized and utilized the body over centuries. Examines art through that most accessible and relatable lens: the human body. There are no directly comparable titles in the market; this is the only book to examine the subject in such depth and scope. Diverse and multi-cultural, it explores the manifestations of the body through time, cultures and media. Visually arresting, this book will surprise, inspire and inform art lovers everywhere. Over 400 artists featured: works range from 11, 000 BC hand stencils in Argentine caves to videos and performances by contemporary artists such as Marina Abramovic, Joan Jonas and Bruce Nauman. Follows in the tradition of bestsellers such as The Story of Art, The Art Book, The Photography Book, and 30, 000 Years of Art. Perfect gift for the holidays, a classic in the making and an indispensable reference for any home library.
