PDF What Makes a Masterpiece: PDF

by Christopher Dell

What Makes a Masterpiece explores the most important works of art
ever created, from the Chauvet Cave to Cézanne. It covers art from
Africa to China, Japan to South and Central America, Persia to Sri
Lanka, as well as a large selection of European works from Ancient
Greece to Impressionism. Little-known treasures such as the Iberian
Lady of Elche or a Maya relief from Palenque appear alongside well-loved
classics such as Masaccio’s Expulsion of Adam and Eve or Degas’s
Little Dancer, creating a fascinating and unique collection of groundbreaking
and beautiful works.

The book brings together an impressive list of authors: artists
such as Antony Gormley and Avigdor Arikha, writers including
Marina Warner and Philip Pullman, and cultural figures like
Germaine Greer and Quentin Blake appear alongside curators and
directors from the Louvre, Prado, Museo di San Marco, Berlin
Gemäldegalerie, Metropolitan Museum of Art, National Gallery of
Art, British Museum, and the National Gallery, London. Intimate
knowledge combines with unique insight (and some startling new
interpretations) to create fresh analyses of these works, of as much
interest to art historians as to the general reader.
