Read full description of the books:



Bob Raczka, delivers on his promise of covering 14 styles (13 isms & one not) of art. The things that I liked in this book were

1. Clearly delineated what the style meant, its origins, famous painters who painted in that style, it's key characteristics and one striking full (facing) page illustration and why it belongs to said style - all in a single page
2. Introduced art & other terms in the body, highlighted them and briefly defined them at the bottom of the page in which they appeared
3. Brought up some isms that I'd plain not known or remembered thus differentiating Naturalism and Realism - Fauvism, Futurism and Op Art (none of which I'd ever heard of)

The things that I found somewhat lacking (these are quibbles)

1. Found no coherent flow - as in isms were neither arranged in alphabetical nor chronological order. Some isms which were a response to an earlier ism where arranged appropriately, but for a reader going back it was a little disconcerting - a short table of contents or index would have helped

2. Upon a second and third view, it appeared 80% of these isms had their origins in France (or Italy) - several (more modern) had their appearance in the United States. Maybe the book was better titled then All about Isms in Western Art - but this is personal quibble

3. The use of "cute" fonts for each ism on the top of each page, in my view detracted needlessly from what was otherwise excellent content.

Would recommend the book whole-heartedly for both adults and kids.
