Why is it that certain paintings fascinate us so? What is it about them that makes them so alluring? Whether prehistoric cave paintings or Renaissance masterpieces, this richly illustrated volume explains the story behind the people and events depicted in the world's most renowned works of art. The authors offer compelling and other amusing insights and approach art's icons in a refreshingly unconventional manner. In a light, uncomplicated style, they describe why many of these works became symbols of an entire age. They take account of major themes, such as love, dreams, revolution, and war, to explain why certain works were considered important in their day, and why they have remained crucial ever since. The headings of the individual texts succinctly describe the significance of each painting, and all works are exquisitely reproduced as full-page colour illustrations.
