The (True!) History of Art



ISBN: 9781906838713 Category:

Sylvain Coissard


This small book contains big revelations. It unveils the mysteries behind the world’s great paintings. Or, it might not. The (True!) History of Art takes an outrageously speculative look at the stories behind the works of Monet, Rembrandt, and other masters of art. In a series of hilarious parodies, Sylvain Coissard and Alexis Lemoine answer the nagging questions of art history: What caused Munch’s subject to scream? Why is Van Gogh’s Yellow Bedroom so suspiciously tidy? Why is Cu00e9zanne wearing a bandage in his famous self-portrait? The (True!) History of Art is for anyone who wants to know what happened before the Mona Lisa smiled. Or, rather, what might have happened.
