    Reflecting on my reading year 2016, I came to think of books that have meant a lot to me over the past decades, and the first one that came to my mind was Gombrich?s excellent introduction to art history. I will have to go back twenty years, half my life, to the year 1996. I am t...

    I should preface everything I say with a general caveat: I am a novice in the world of art, which is the reason I picked up this book in the first place. Although I often drew as a child, I was more interested in schematic, technical drawings than anything you could call ?art?. And...

    First, the obvious flaws. This was originally written in 1950 by a white European man. It has all the biases you'd expect: referring to certain cultures as "primitive"; largely glossing over any art outside Europe; always defaulting to the male pronoun and in fact only naming one (**ON...

    A very conservative treatment of mostly western art focusing mostly and the Renaissance and giving short shrift to impressionism and anything after 1850. Very good treatment of the things it does cover but I would have liked a little more space devoted to more modern art. ...

    I bought The Story of Art while about to leave Brugge, after a long week-end that was supremely friendly and quite artsy. I started reading this book as soon as I sat down in the train and was enchanted by it until the last page. Gombrich's The Story of Art is a masterful story of ...

    First, the obvious flaws. This was originally written in 1950 by a white European man. It has all the biases you'd expect: referring to certain cultures as "primitive"; largely glossing over any art outside Europe; always defaulting to the male pronoun and in fact only naming one (**ON...

    I bought The Story of Art while about to leave Brugge, after a long week-end that was supremely friendly and quite artsy. I started reading this book as soon as I sat down in the train and was enchanted by it until the last page. Gombrich's The Story of Art is a masterful story of ...

    This well-composed book was a pleasure to read. And as far as introducing the history of art, it is exactly what I was looking for; beautiful photographs, lucid descriptions, no jargon, no pretension. I recommend that you read the short preface and first chapter, and I bet that you...

    I thumbed through a much older (perhaps first) edition of this book when I was away from home and looking for something to read. I was immediately hooked by Gombrich's enthusiastic writing. When I returned home, I was extremely pleased to find that the latest edition was lavishly illus...

    I should preface everything I say with a general caveat: I am a novice in the world of art, which is the reason I picked up this book in the first place. Although I often drew as a child, I was more interested in schematic, technical drawings than anything you could call ?art?. And...

    First, the obvious flaws. This was originally written in 1950 by a white European man. It has all the biases you'd expect: referring to certain cultures as "primitive"; largely glossing over any art outside Europe; always defaulting to the male pronoun and in fact only naming one (**ON...

    Divulgazione per tutti Un ottimo libro che permette e ha permesso a moltissimi di farsi un'idea sull'oggetto. Praticamente privo di snobismo ed elucubrazioni fumose quanto dubbie. Appare di prima lettura un p? cagionevole sull'arte moderna e contemporanea; a parer mio no. L'effetto ?...

    A very conservative treatment of mostly western art focusing mostly and the Renaissance and giving short shrift to impressionism and anything after 1850. Very good treatment of the things it does cover but I would have liked a little more space devoted to more modern art. ...

    I bought The Story of Art while about to leave Brugge, after a long week-end that was supremely friendly and quite artsy. I started reading this book as soon as I sat down in the train and was enchanted by it until the last page. Gombrich's The Story of Art is a masterful story of ...

    It would be no exaggeration to say that this book changed my life. Before I read this I thought that most art was overpriced garbage. Especially modern art. By going through the history of art and saying how one era shaped the next and also why art is important to human development rea...
