CAIRO BOOKS's Description
The history of Western painting is frequently reduced to canvases created by
old masters and avant-garde artists. Three-dimensional objects, miniatures,
costumes, or stained-glass works are too often excluded. This lively, richly
illustrated volume is an alternative history of painting, expanding its scope
from works on paper and canvas to include painted ceramics, textiles,
furniture, and more. Drawing on the outstanding collections of the Victoria and
Albert Museum to illustrate its wide-ranging compilation of painting types from
the Middle Ages to the present day, this innovative, thought-provoking volume
will appeal to anyone eager to expand their view of painting and anyone
fascinated by the ever-changing world of art.
