Description

Fully revised and updated, here is a concise and authoritative guide to the technical terms most commonly used in painting. What is tempera? What is foreshortening? What is fresco? These are just some 100+ terms that are explained and illustrated in this authoritative volume. Now fully revised and updated, "Looking at Paintings" presents concise and readable explanations of the technical terms most often encountered by art enthusiast, visitors to galleries, and museum goers. This new edition also pays special attention to the processes and methods of painting conservation, as well as offering definitions and examples of materials and techniques - such as colour field and collage - that did not feature in previous volumes. A practical reference and perfect gift for art lovers of all ages and abilities.
