Biographical Encyclopedia of Artists (4 Volume Set) by Alvar Aalto, Paul Durand-Ruel, Albrecht Durer, Jan Lievensz, Limburg Brothers, Francisco Ribalta, Jusepe De Ribera, Francisco De Zurbaran

The four-volume Biographical Dictionary of Artists is an extensive reference to hundreds of influential and diverse artists. A Comprehensive Reference to Great Artists of the World From Finnish architect Alvar Aalto to Spanish painter Francisco de Zurbarn, the four-volume Biographical Dictionary of Artists provides concise profiles of the worlds most important artists. Covering sculptors, architects, painters, video artists, and many other visual artists, this comprehensive reference details the lives and major works of prominent artists throughout history and from around the world. Each entry offers biographical data on the artist, characteristics of the artists creative output, significance of the work, career milestones, and locations where the work is displayed. Further readings follow selected entries, and a glossary at the end of the fourth volume defines art-related terms. Accessible, Up-to-date, and Inclusive Biographies Organized in an A-to-Z format, Biographical Dictionary of Artists includes not only well-known artists, but also lesser-known individuals who in many cases are excluded from or glossed over in general surveys of art history. The inclusion of artists who are not part of the canon of Western art gives readers the opportunity to discover unfamiliar artists and develop a broader understanding of art history. Artists of the late 20th and early 21st centuries are covered, as are women and artists from other groups who have traditionally been underrepresented in art books. The ideal companion to Facts On File Encyclopedia of Art, this biographical encyclopedia makes information about artists easy to find and readily available. Beautifully Illustrated with Informative Captions Each highly illustrated volume is packed with photographs or reproductionsmany in full coloraccompanied by informative captions. An up-to-date chronology of artists and a comprehensive set index add to this accessible reference. Artists covered include: Laurie Anderson Louise Bourgeois Chang Ta-chien Chuck Close Paul Durand-Ruel Albrecht Drer Frank Gehry Eva Hesse Jasper Johns Frida Kahlo Ellsworth Kelly Anselm Kiefer Li Ko-jan Jan Lievensz Limburg Brothers Henri Matisse Nam June Park Jusepe de Ribera Richard Serra Jan Vermeer Andy Warhol and many others.
