Eine Entdeckungsreise durch die Epochen, Stile und Richtungen der Kunst - von der Höhlenmalerei bis zur Gegenwart Ein Besuch in einer Kunstgalerie kann einen überwältigen – eine erstaunliche Parade von rätselhaften Bildern, Gegenständen und Installationen, von Künstlern und Kunstrichtungen, die uns kaum einen klaren Blick dafür vermitteln, wie das, was da alles zusammenhängt, auch zusammenpasst. Die 50 Schlüsselideen Kunst helfen, den Überblick zu behalten. Für alle, die Schwierigkeiten haben, Degas von Dalí oder Monet von Mondrian zu unterscheiden, bietet dieser informative Ratgeber Hinweise auf 50 der wichtigsten und einflussreichsten Grundkonzepte in der Kunst – von den Ideen der alten Griechen bis zu solchen der Gegenwart. Aufgenommen sind dabei einerseits Stilepochen wie Barock, Renaissance, die niederländische Malerei des 17. Jahrhunderts, altägyptische Kunst oder klassische Antike, andererseits werden unterschiedliche Stilrichtungen betrachtet wie Romantik, Kubismus, Minimalismus, Surrealismus, Pop-Art, Konzeptkunst und Medienkunst. Die wichtigsten Schlüsselbegriffe werden in einem Glossar, das dem klaren, kompakten und auch kunstvollen Text von Susie Hodge beigegeben ist, sowie durch Mini-Essays und Kurzbiografien von epochemachenden Künstlern vertieft. Mit einer instruktiven Auswahl von Bildern, die beispielhaft Stilmerkmale und künstlerische Ideen zeigen, und mit einer übersichtlichen historischen Zeitleiste wird jede Kunstrichtung in ihren Kontext gestellt und insgesamt ein breiter Überblick über die weltweit bedeutendsten Entwicklungen von Kunst und Design vermittelt. Wem die künstlerische Ausdrucksweise jemals ein Rätsel war und wer sich einen groben Überblick verschaffen möchte, der wird bei diesem Buch voll auf seine Kosten kommen.
