A reference book.
am 19. Oktober 1999
This book is concise, even though fairly comprehensive. It gives beginers in this field the necessary basis and never gets boring. One reads and learns, and enjoys the many pictures in the book. Gombrich is simple, clear, and above all, he loves the master pieces he introduces. He makes one discover the major periods, the major movements and also the life of the major Masters.
It is as instructing as a History book, and as captivating as a Novel: the Story of Art is definitely a good title!
The first book one should have on the subject.
