The story behind the painting (by Look Magazine)
A book about paintings and their stories? Can this be interesting? Well, I think YES! I loved reading this book and it provided so many insights from a different point of view. This book is not about an ordinary art history lesson, it furthermore explains the personalities behind the painting, the emotions, and feelings. The idea of the artists and very often the artist's struggles, too. Every painting is limited to a maximum of 780 words.
It is a very refreshing reading about art. Short essays, beautiful artwork, and interesting insights of the art world and history.
On Tuesday I will feature another great art book on my blog.
