Description

Art lovers can list history’s most important art objects, but what many  don’t know are the dramatic, funny, and sometimes bizarre stories behind  these most famous works. Spanning the last 500 years of art history,  this book revisits fifty momentous events that changed the course of  art—days when now world-famous works like Michelangelo’s David or Marcel Duchamp’s urinal were unveiled for the first time. In Key Moments in Art,  chance meetings spur artists to create exciting new styles such as  Impressionism or Cubism, landmark performances take place, and  revolutionary exhibitions open. The book also looks at fights, lawsuits,  auctions, and crime–from the theft of the Mona Lisa to the day van Gogh’s Sunflowers become the most expensive painting ever sold.
