Editorial Reviews

Review

"A lively, entertaining examination of the ways that art-making has been re-shaped down the centuries," Michael Glover, 'Books of the Year 2012', The Independent


"One to buy for your roommate, live-in, or spouse, and then read yourself! Even if he or she is already an arty know-it-all, Michael Bird's 100 Ideas That Changed Art will come in handy. ... Ever succinct, Bird gets to the heart of each idea and includes visual aids (check out those for "body as surface" before you gift-wrap)." Elissa Schappell, 'Best Books of the Year', Vanity Fair

"...a succinct account of the most influential developments in the history of art." - Maria Popova, Brainpickings

"Michael Bird has written a book that caters to every sort of art lover, from novice art historian to seasoned museum-goer...100 Ideas That Changed Art is a must-read for any art enthusiast." - The MIT Tech

Format: Paperback
Beautifully laid out, the book throws out a number of ideas, some directly related to art others not, that contributed to the development of plastic arts. Fascinating for those who love art, but have not studied it formally.

I purchased this for my high school art classroom not realizing that it contains a section on erotic art. Woops. It's a nice book for a home library as well.

I bought this, along with a few of the other "100 ideas" books, to keep on my tables to spurs of inspiration and to entertain any guests I have. This is a friend favorite.

I ordered this book for a family member and was very unpleasantly surprised with her reaction. It seems that this book includes several "adult" photos. These are not artistic nudes. They are sexually explicit photos unsuitable for many people. I couldn't believe it but she sent me examples. Art to some perhaps........
