About

With more than 300,000 copies sold worldwide in 15 languages, this newly revised and updated edition of 1001 Paintings You Must See Before You Die brings you right up to date with an incisive look at the world's best paintings.

From Ancient Egyptian wall paintings to contemporary European canvases, this book is truly comprehensive in scope and beautiful to leaf through. Within its pages you will see 1,001 of the most memorable, haunting, powerful, important, controversial and visually arresting paintings that have ever been created. More than 400 twentieth and twenty-first-century paintings are reproduced in these pages, including new works from contemporary galleries.

Entertaining and informative text written by an international team of artists, curators, art critics and art collectors illuminates both the paintings and the people who painted them. An insightful review accompanies a beautiful reproduction of every painting – an enviable art collection to dip into whenever you please. The book is organized chronologically, so you will discover fascinating and surprising juxtapositions as well as pleasing similarities as you turn the sumptuous pages. The paintings are also listed by artist and by title, making it easy to find a specific painting or trace the development of one painter's work.

Accompany Professor Stephen Farthing on his personal guided tour of the paintings everyone should strive to see in a lifetime. Many are easily accessible – either in well-known galleries, such as the Louvre in Paris or MoMA in New York, or in smaller, more intimate collections across the far reaches of the globe. Every one of them is worth planning to see.
