Piero Ventura is an Italian painter and here in his book he presents visual stories of great painters.
Curious about the painting masters?
Want to know about their struggles and triumphs?
Care to be amazed at the number of great painters who died in their 30's and still ended up becoming known as masters?
Always wondering what the heck is a fresco anyway?
Want to know who invented oil painting?
Curious about what painters used before oil paint?
You just know I am going to suggest you pick up this wonderfully illustrated book. Consider that I am also a painter. So, when I say wonderfully illustrated book, I am seriously telling you that this is one beautiful book with great reproductions of the masters' works. A painter knows this.
Finally, as an artist (http://www.BarbaraGarro.com) for many years, I have read and have a huge library of the works and stories of the masters. I am reading Piero Ventura's book from cover to cover, because every page is an event with lots to draw the eye and I don't want to miss one morsel of Ventura's delightful artistic feast.
