    Kitapta iki şey hoşuma gitti. Birincisi, sanatın sadece sanatçı ya da sadece akım başlığı altında ele alınması değil, sanatçı, akım, mekan gibi unsurlarının tanıtımına bir arada yer verilmesiydi. Hoşuma giden ikinci şey de, sanatçıların veya akımların bu tür kitaplarda alışkın olduğumuz kronolojik bir sıralama yerine rastgele bir düzenle incelenmesi oldu. Bu tercih, hadi hep beraber mağara resminden rönesansa, izlenimcilerden çağdaş sanata gelelim sıkıcılığı yerine okuma keyfini çok artırmış.

    great book to anyone who wants to start learning about art without being overwhelmed! loved it! simple, learned a lot and even despite the apparent lack of order or continuity, that's one of the reasons the book never dragged on and became boring.

    As the title implies, this is a really good basic introduction to modern art and artists. This could very well be used in an art class and I wish they would have offered this in school. There were a few photos at the end but I'm undecided as to whether this book would have benefited from photos of the art, but in not having them, I was not distracted from the reading and much less likely to skim past based on if I liked the art or not.

There were a few photos at the end but I'm undecided as to whether this book would have benefited from photos of the art, but in not having them, I was not distracted from the reading and much less likely to skim past based on if I liked the art or not. So now I'll go back up and look up the many artists and their work that interested me. Discoveries as I look up the art and artists on the internet afterward: 1. I LOVE Bauhaus art. 2. I do not care for Dadaism even though much of it is done in a collage method, which I do love. 3. Impressionism is dreamy. 4. I do enjoy appropriation art. Think American Gothic and all the many variations on that theme. 5. I admire typography art but not so much all the 'Kitchen', 'Eat' signs that are popular in home decor today. 6. The colors of Fauvism appeal to me. 7. Cubism looks like a fun little exercise. 8. While I like the technique used by Jackson Pollock, I find his pieces too busy. 9. Love the subject and style of Edward Hopper. 10. Frida Kahlo was the master of self-portrait art but didn't live to see her success and admiration grow. She lived a hard life. 11. Pablo Picasso made art seem effortless. 12. Rembrandt's portraits were SO good! 13. I love Georgia O'Keeffe's Evening Star series. There's a lot more packed into Art 101.

    I wouldn't buy this book, but it was a good reminder of a lot of the artists, movements, etc. that I studied back in high school. It didn't have a lot of pictures, which is odd in an art book, but not a deal breaker as I can Google things. The one thing that I really disliked was the lack of any kind of organization. It wasn't in chronological or alphabetical order, or even grouped by artists, movements, buildings, etc. It was very odd.

    Good introduction for art, but two negative points: It’s not in a chronological order which would confuse the novice reader about the development of art forms and schools. Second the lack of painting photos during the description which would require the interested reader in looking the images up himself.

    The pros: relatively simple to grasp The cons: the severe lack of pictures, the obvious lack of effort put into it, no organization. Makes me regret picking it up as a budding artist. However, I bought it because it was in line with Music Theory 101, so I suppose it's not that wasteful. But I still strongly wished I got a different art book.

    It was fine and easy to read, but I would have preferred it if they started each artist with their most famous work so I could know who I was reading about. It took me until one of the final lines in Piet Mondrian to realise that I actually knew one of his pieces, so I actually cared about him. If I did get one thing out of this book, it's that Max Ernst's The Triumph of Surrealism exists.

    Lots of good information but no organization. You would have to come into reading this book with a structure of Art History already, which defeats the purpose of the book. Would not recommend.

    Sanat hakkında az da olsa bir şeyler bilmek istiyor yahut bu dünyaya giriş yapmak istiyorsanız kesinlikle okuyun. Bütün her şey oldukça temiz ve sade bir şekilde anlatılmış.

    Çok yüzeysel, derinlemesine inmiyor ama isminden dolayı daha fazlasını beklemiştim kitaptan. Yine de bir çok şey öğrendiğimi söylemeden geçemeyeceğim.

    Kronolojik sıra kullanılmamış, genel hatlarıyla öğrenmek için okunabilir fakat sanata ilgisi olan ve bir süredir farklı kaynaklardan faydalananlar için yetersiz kalacaktır

    This book offers a bird's eye view of the development of art in the western world. Though it does not enter into much details yet at times the author provided curious details and backgrounds of several masterpieces created by legendary artists. All in all, it is an entertainment to go through the book.

    Kitap kronolojik olarak sanat tarihini anlatmiyor ancak kendi icinde farkli biz dizilime ait. Eserler ve sanatcilara ait az bilinen gerceklere vermesi cok hos. Giris seviyesinde ilk okunacak kitaplar arasinda tavsiye ederim.
