9780751310528: Composition (Eyewitness Art)

The "Eyewitness Art" series covers great painters, art movements, classic themes, and pivotal periods in art history. The way in which an artist, movement or technique developed is revealed through annotated photographs of paintings, people, sketchbooks, personal possessions and ephemera from museums and private collections around the world. This title in the series, "Composition", goes beyond the surface details of pictures to describe the chief techniques employed by artists in their search for an overall visual result. The books in the series support National Curriculum teaching requirements at all levels.

From Library Journal:

In this excellent book, London-based contemporary art critic Kent sets out to explain composition?why and how painters divide up the surfaces of their pictures?by looking closely at specific masterpieces. Her very effective selections include well-known works by masters such as Manet, Gainsborough, and Picasso. To describe and illustrate ideas like perspective, color, and narrative, she naturally leans more heavily on representational traditions, but the final few pages of her short book do address more recent experiments with abstraction. Kent's captions are deftly written, and she articulately explains both the conceptual and tangible elements contained within a four-sided work of art. Like previous titles in Dorling Kindersley's extremely useful series (e.g., Sculpture, LJ 11/15/94), Kent's is geared toward the beginning student of painting or art history, and it's easy to imagine this book serving as an invaluable supplementary text for a first-year art history course. Despite its brevity, Composition goes far beyond the desultory treatment that this topic receives in most histories of art. Highly recommended for all collections.?Douglas F. Smith, Oakland P.L., Cal.

From School Library Journal:

YA?A mini-course in art appreciation. By presenting the basic elements and applications of composition, Kent explains how paintings are viewed, and how the artist arranges the work for best representation. Balance, perspective, design, symmetry, horizon, sequence, light, color, and the other aspects of composition are described in a lucid text that delineates the features of individual paintings. Over 70 Western masterpieces are displayed with analyses of the artists' techniques. Readers are drawn along the splendid pageant of art history from the 15th-20th centuries by examples of innovations introduced by painters from da Vinci to Picasso. Each picture features a separate aspect of composition, which is interpreted for viewers. While the glossary doesn't cover all terms used in the text, the definitions provided are quite sufficient. The material is so attractively and clearly presented that this is a "must purchase" for any collection.?Catherine Noonan, Fairfax County Public Library, VA
