The Short Story of Art is a new and innovative introduction to the subject of art. Simply constructed, the book explores 50 key works, from the wall paintings of Lascaux to contemporary installations, and then links these to sections on art movements, themes, and techniques.

Accessible and concise, it simplifies and explains the most important and influential concepts in art, and shows how they are linked.

It demystifies artistic jargon, giving readers a thorough understanding and broad enjoyment of art.
