"Learning to look at paintings" is an accessible guide to the study and appraisal of paintings, drawings and prints. Mary Acton shows how you can develop visual, analytical and historical skills in learning to look at and understand an image by analysing how it works, what its pictorial elements are and how the relate to each other.
This fully revised and updated new edition is illustrated with over one hundred images by a wide range of Western European and American artists, ranging from Rembrandt, Van Gogh and Botticelli to Picasso, Matisse ant Rothko, and now icludes modern and contemporary artists such as Georgia O'Keeffe, Anselm Kiefer, Tacita Dean and Marlene Dumas. In addition, MAryt Acton uses these and other new examples to highlight the survival and revival of painting in recent years.
A new introduction situates the book in the wider context of recent changes in the approach to art history. A glossary of critical and technical terms used in the language of art history is also included, with an updated but still selective reading list.
