    FROM VINCENT VAN GOGH TO ANDY WARHOL, KEY PEOPLE, IDEAS, AND MOMENTS IN THE HISTORY OF ART

    Introduction:

    Many people are intimidated by “art books.” And rightfully so: Too often, the writer assumes that the reader possesses a level of technical skill and knowledge far beyond that of the casual art enthusiast. “Simple” concepts like perspective, color theory, and the process of combining lines to create shapes are glossed over (or omitted entirely). The beauty of Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa is presented as indisputable fact, without any explanation as to why it is supposed to be the greatest painting ever created.
    Not Art 101, however. Here, you’ll be able to learn about art without feeling like you’re reading a textbook for advanced art students. You’ll find art techniques, movements, and mediums as well as the fascinating stories of famous artists presented in such a way that you can understand and appreciate them—and maybe throw around a few key terms at museums or cocktail parties. While it would take tens of thousands—possibly even millions—of pages to cover every aspect of art, the topics featured in this book encompass a large swathe of art history, theory, and technique. Many of the entries directly relate to one another (such as Henri Matisse and Modern Art), but you can also pick and choose the topics you find most compelling and skip around at your leisure. You can read about Van Gogh’s struggles for notoriety and transition straight to ancient cave art. Maybe you’re interested in sculpture or want to brush up on the history of typography. Just like a museum, this book contains “rooms” of myriad topics from around the world and throughout time. After reading Art 101, you’ll finally be able to fully appreciate what’s hanging on the walls and sitting behind glass
