30,000 Years of Art reveals the huge diversity – or in many cases, the similarity – of artistic achievements around the globe. This compact guide features more than 600 masterworks from all cultures in chronological order so that you can see what was being produced across the globe at the same time -- from 28,000 BC to the present day. Only here will you find Picasso's Demoiselles d'Avignon next to a face mask from Gabon or Lucian Freud's Standing by the Rags along side an aboriginal memorial from Australia. With each work chosen as an example of the art of its culture, and with descriptive text that sets each entry in context, 30,000 Years of Art is an accessible, informative, and fun introduction to world art.
