Clues to the meaning of many of the masterpieces of art history lie in a rich system of symbols, themes, and motifs that often eludes modern museum-goers.

This insightful, anecdotal, portable book, with 1,000 gorgeous color illustrations, helps to fill in those gaps by decoding th imagery of more than 150 of the most influential and admired artworks of all time.
Covering the works of the Italian, Netherlandish, German, and Spanish Old Masters, from 1450 to 1750, paintings by artists such as Giotto, Botticelli, El Greco, Bruegel, Holbein, Rubens, and Vermeer, all held in public collections, How to Read a Painting" not only helps the viewer to understand the significant details of a picture but also explains the relationship with similar imagery in other works. The guide to Old Master paintings that every art lover has always wanted, this indispensable museum companion will open the reader to a whole new experience of Western art's most praised and visited paintings.

About the Author:

Patrick De Rynck is a classicist, a translator, and a writer for museums, publishers, newspapers, and radio. He is the author of ten books, including an ABC of Classical literature and a retelling of Greek myths.

From Booklist:

As De Rynck succinctly observes, today's art viewers aren't "sufficiently familiar with the Christian and classical pictorial traditions on which European artists drew so heavily and for so many centuries." To correct this lack, he presents 150 paintings and frescoes that have attained the status of masterpieces. Each work is displayed on a full-color two-page spread that includes detailed close-ups and a meticulous decoding of the painting's subject, symbols, and intent. This is a truly felicitious approach, and the selections are supreme, ranging from Fra Angelico's The Annunciation to Titian's Venus and Adonis to Goya's The Third of May, 1808. Donna Seaman
