THE STORY OF ART
Whether you are an appreciator or a collector, you can’t deny that art plays a central role in our lives. And what is the perfect accompaniment to better educate us on these creations? Books obviously!
In a world where we desire to discover more, we are no longer satisfied by the finished result, including what sometimes is hanging on the wall. From how a piece was made to the initial designs, or like celebrity culture, we seek to learn about the lives of artists and to understand them as people, to better inform us of their influences and achievements.
So what more suitable way is there to discover the secrets behind our favourite works of art than reading about them!
