Looking at pictures can be a delightful, exciting or moving experience, but some pictures – and these are often the most rewarding – require some explanation before they can be fully understood. Delving into the origins, designs and themes of over 100 pictures from different periods and places, this book illuminates the art of looking at – and talking about – pictures.

Susan Woodford shows how you can read a picture by examining the formal and stylistic devices used by an artist, and explores popular themes and subject matters, and the relationship of pictures to the societies that produced them. The book is supplemented by a glossary of key terms, ranging from art movements and technical terms to religious and classical terminology, to give readers all the information they need at their fingertips.

Exploring the origins, designs and themes of over one hundred pictures from different periods and places, Susan Woodford artfully expands our appreciation of pictures. Woodford’s riveting prose compares different artistic approaches, questions assumptions and introduces us to a wide range of stimulating ideas. Whether looking at a Japanese woodcut, Leonardo’s Last Supper or Picasso’s Guernica, Looking at Pictures will develop your eye as well as your confidence. This essential guide concludes with a glossary and invaluable suggestions for further reading.
