The creative impulse is an ancient and enduring feature of human expression. Art serves many purposes: to beautify, record, reflect, enlighten, and celebrate our existence. Eye on Art examines the rich and varied world of art. Major art movements, the artists who fueled them, and the works they created are all discussed in this series. Also covered are the essential tools of artists as well as efforts to preserve and restore artwork for future generations. All volumes in this series are beautifully illustrated with full-color photographs and diagrams. Riveting narrative, informative sidebars, fully documented quotations, a bibliography, and thorough index all provide excellent starting points for research and discussion.
