In addition to biographies of the great painters of all time, the book includes lengthy sections on Chinese, Japanese, Persian, and Indian painting, and informative articles on African art, Etruscan art, Egyptian art, cave painting, and numerous other categories covering all periods from prehistoric time to the present day. There are also lucid explanations of the various movements in painting: Impressionism, Non-objective Art, Surrealism, Cubism, Minimal Art, Photo-Realism, Op Art, Pop Art, Action Painting, Conceptual Art, and so on. And there are entries about most of the world’s finest art museums.
The illustrations have been selected with the greatest care and discrimination, gathered from all parts of the world—from places as remote as Korea and Teheran— and from hundreds of institutions and private collections as well. In many instances, agencies of foreign governments helped to track down special pictures. Among the paintings reproduced here are countless famous and familiar ones, but many lesser-known though equally fine works have been included.
Nearly all the abundant illustrations have been placed on the same page as the text reference, enabling the reader to see the painting that is being discussed. These illustrations have been printed with special care to ensure the finest quality of reproduction and to help make the Encyclopedia of Painting a beautiful art book as well as an important reference work.
