History of the Art

A.N. Hodge

This is a pretty good guide for anyone who wants to get a broad brushtroke (pardon the pun) understanding of how and when the different styles evolved and who their chief protagonists were, starting with the Italian Renaissance. As the author admits in the intro, "it's no straightforward task to present painting as a chronological history of styles and movements," but AN Hodge makes a good fist of placing the great paintings and artists of the western world in context, especially with the timelines at the start of each chapter that tell you what other famous characters and events were making headlines at the time.
