As all the degrees involved in the creation of this blog would have an Art History subject next semester, I thought it would be useful to start to approach the topic. Specially for the people who never met the topic before, such as me. While we will be” trying to analyze the place of art in the lives of human beings and especially as they arose as expressions of each period of time and culture” as it is said in the courses program, we should have some sort of tools or basis to face the issues. This time I am recommending a book by Susan Woodford on how to succeed in getting an overall analysis of paintings “Looking at Pictures“. I hope it’s worthy to begin with.
