Gayford and Wright have gathered together some seminal statements on Art made over the centuries.
Covering artists, their patrons, media and techniques, the book is a very useful insight into interpretations of Art in all of its forms.
It becomes heavy reading because the text is unrelieved by any illustrations, which seems a pity when the text is directly concerned with visual elements.
