    1. "O Romantismo () valorizava as emoções humanas,os instintos ()Refere-se a obras de arte em que os estados de alma subjectivos,como os sentimentos,disposições e intuições,são dominantes".

    2. It's been 10 years since I've taken AP art history, so I picked up this book at the library while browsing the art section to get a little refresher. It served as a nice, quick 'n dirty general overview of art ideas in western art history. It got the job done (and reminded me that there's a lot that I've forgotten :)).

    4. I suppose this is one of those books which any amateur should have in their library, but it is very, very unspecific. The book is really good for someone who just wants to scratch the surface and sort of get some general knowledge, but that's about it. I liked that some of the art which has been referenced is not mainstream/well known so one gets a more broad idea of the specific genre. The format is really easy to follow and overall it's an okay read, but not for someone with years of studying [...]

    5. This is one of the books that sits on a short square table in my studio. I browse through it again and again when I want to refer to a period, a style, a painter. I have myriad other books on art but this book is small, packed with information and decent color reproductions of key works by key artists from key periods. The chronology of periods and styles and the layout of the book has really helped me to form and keep in my head a solid visual timeline of painters and movements. While this isn' [...]

    6. This is a good primer on modern art movements. It's designed as a primer, with a basic description, some background, some examples, and some guidance as to where it fits within the overall art movements. The choice to focus on pieces at a single museum per movement was a little strange, and a more visual representation of how the movements fed off of or bled into each other would have been nice, but this does a very good job of giving the prominent names and time periods for each movement. This [...]

    7. Completely euro-centric. Covers the major and minor art movements in Western Europe, mostly, while ignoring art traditions of other regions totally. Nice pictures and small, neat summaries, though they do get obscure and generic at times. A good read, only if one is interested in western European art history.

    9. The accurate name for the book should be “isms: understanding West European art”. Good to have this reference book on the shelf for getting a general overview about the main art movements in Western Europe since XIV century.

    10. This is a great book if you want a quick reference for art history movements. Of course it's by no means exhaustive, but it gives the reader a good place to start with a brief history, a list of prominent artists, and some of the most well-known works of each.

    11. I read it in Turkish and I wish, there was at least names of the movement in English also. Everything, but everything is translated and sometimes it is weird to read. (like naturemort which is a very well accepted, common definition in Turkish for art, also translated as "ölü doğa")
