Description

The Art Collection is a newly created and designed art series analyses the historical importance and cultural legacy of famous artists, from Renoir to Cezanne, through Monet, van Gogh, Degas, Klimt, Toulouse-Lautrec, Gauguin and Hieronymus Bosch, with a final volume on religious icons. The books are distinguished by superb illustrations and colour reproductions of representative works, resulting in an essential collection for any art lover at a remarkably affordable price.


The tenth title in the series celebrates religious works of art (most commonly paintings) in the cultures of the Eastern Orthodox Church, Oriental Orthodoxy, the Roman Catholic, and certain Eastern Catholic churches. The most common subjects include Christ, Mary, saints and angels.


The book is full of examples of icons, including portraits, narrative and Biblical scenes. Icons may also be cast in metal, carved in stone, embroidered on cloth, painted on wood, done in mosaic or fresco work and printed on paper or metal. 300 colour and b/w illustrations
