One World Publications 2014
This succinct and easy to explore account of the main developments in Western art in the Nineteenth Century is to the point, well-illustrated and richly sourced. While the emphasis is on France, there is plenty of material on the art produced in Britain, Germany and the USA. Equally, the author covers a full range of art forms and offers insightful readings of key paintings, buildings and other art works.
