ART IN HISTORY: 600 BC-2000 AD. Martin Kemp. Profile Books Ltd, London, 2014. Ideas in Profile. 238 pp. with 111 ills. 20 x 13 cm. ISBN 9781781253366 In English.
Publisher's description: When we look at a painting by Raphael, Rembrandt, or Rubens it speaks to us directly, but it's also a historical document, part of a living world. Martin Kemp takes the reader on an extraordinary trip through art, from devotional works to the revolutionary techniques of the Renaissance, from the courtly Masters of the seventeenth century through to the daring avant-garde of the twentieth century and beyond. Art In History is an indispensable, accessible and richly detailed guide to our culture, our history, our heritage, and our art. Martin Kemp is emeritus professor of the history of art at Oxford University.
