Fandex brings the world of Western Art to your fingertips with a field guide to painters, their legacies and the often extreme lives they led. Painters is a short course in Western art with the cards in chronological order from Giotto, the first modern painter, to Frank Stella, whose black paintings proclaimed "what you see is what you see." Here is Michelangelo, who resented having to paint the Sistine Chapel because it took him away from sculpture. Botticelli and Vermeer, whose work languished in obscurity until the nineteenth century, are included along with Mary Cassatt, the only American to be included with the Impressionists. Featuring portraits, self-portraits and photographs, paintings and details, it brings art's evolution to your fingertips.
