From Renaissance to Impressionism Styles and Movements in Western Art, 1400-1900

by Jane Turner

Part of the Grove Art Series Series

From Renaissance to Impressionism Styles and Movements in Western Art, 1400-1900 Synopsis

From the Renaissance and Mannerism to Impressionism and Post-Impressionism, from the Gothic Revival to the Arts and Crafts Movement, and Art Nouveau, the rich and varied history of Western Art is here narrated through more than 180 articles on its most significant styles and movements. Covering all forms of the visual arts-architecture and decorative arts as well as painting and sculpture, each survey discusses the origins, characteristics, leading players, and influence of the most important movements in European, North American, and Latin American art. With articles written in clear, straightforward language and with selective bibliographies, this extensive guide is an essential introduction for anyone with an interest in art and the arts in general. The Grove Art series, focusing on the most important periods and areas of art history, is derived from the critically acclaimed and award-winning The Grove Dictionary of Art. First published in 1996 in 34 volumes, The Dictionary has quickly established itself as the leading reference work on the visual arts, used by schools, universities, museums, and public libraries throughout the world. With articles written by leading scholars in each field, The Dictionary has frequently been praised for its breadth of coverage, accuracy, authority, and accessibility.
