Although arranged chronologically, this introduction to Western art takes an unconventional approach to art history, aiming to reveal 'the ebb and flow of artistic influences, inspirations and ideas from the Renaissance to the present day'. It presents the work of 50 profoundly influential painters, from Giotto to Bridget Riley, and for each one, sets out a biographical timeline and panels of artists and cultural developments that influenced them and artists, writers, film-makers and movements whose work they influenced.
