Splat! The Most Exciting Artists of All Time

The stories behind some of the greatest artworks of all time, including the real-life struggles and triumphs of the artists who created them.

Splat! is the history of art at its most exciting and outrageous. Organized by artist and covering key events and major movements such as the Renaissance and impressionism to surrealism and contemporary art, it is a valuable resource for young art lovers.

Each artist is introduced with bulleted facts including their country of origin, most famous works, the movement they belonged to, techniques they employed, and the greatest challenges they faced in creating their art.

Here are Michelangelo and the High Renaissance; Pieter Bruegel and his paintings of everyday peasant life; Édouard Manet and the shock of impressionism; and Marcel Duchamp and the Dada revolution.
