Why do some artworks stand head and shoulders above others? Exceptional art somehow satisfies at a deeper level than the rest. When Art Really Works showcases a selection of eighty outstanding paintings and sculptures from around the world and throughout time, assessing just what it is that makes them so great. Some owe their greatness to composition or colour, others offer profound insights into their human subjects and some convey their message particularly effectively. Andy Pankhurst and Lucinda Hawksley’s succinct, appraisive text will open your eyes to the unique defining qualities of these key works, enabling you to appreciate the groundbreaking talents of every age.
