    One thought on “Art: The Groundbreaking Moments”

    1. How can anyone summarize the history of art in 200 pages? Despite the gaps (sculpture, anyone?) and omissions (is the only "art" academic Western art?), Heine manages to transition the ever-faster progression in pictoral representation by Western artists fairly well.

    2. Nice overview of the different art movements and styles through history, covering seminal works. Concise, up to the point. Not as good as Gombrich's magnum opus though.
