TASCHEN's Basic Art Series
Softcover with flaps
Art imitates life in the work of the realists. Through painting, photography, and sculpture, 20th century realists invoke reality in works that capture what Freud called "the uncanny"—the inexplicable strangeness of something which seems at once real and not real.
Every book in TASCHEN's Basic Art Series features: A detailed chronological summary of the artist's life and work, covering the cultural and historical importance of the artist. Approximately 100 color illustrations with explanatory captions. A concise biography.
