Andy Pankhurst and Lucinda Hawksley - All books by this author

When… Really Works - All books in this series

What are the qualities that make an artwork great? A recognized painter Andy Pankhurst and art historian Lucinda Hawksley offer compelling answers to this question as they examine 80 historically important paintings and sculptures. All are works of art that stand out from the ordinary because of their originality, their ability to convey powerful emotions, their technical brilliance—distinctive qualities that unmistakably touch them with intimations of immortality. Discussions focus on examples from across the millennia, and include—
  • The Lascaux cave paintings (circa. 15,000 B.C)
  • Italian Renaissance masterpieces by Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo
  • Paintings that demonstrate revolutionary use of color by J.M.W. Turner
  • Impressionist masterworks by Monet and Degas
  • The action painting of Jackson Pollock
  • The Pop Art of Andy Warhol, and many other memorable artists and their works
The book is filled with color illustrations
