Welcome to Cool Art! This fact-tastic book is packed with reasons why art is cooler than you'd ever imagine. Learn why the Mona Lisa has no eyebrows, which artist liked to throw artichokes around, and how to paint like Monet. Discover exactly how strange the Surrealists were, how Duchamp made art out of plumbing, and how art can truly change your life.

From Caravaggio to Banksy, the Renaissance to Minimalism, explore the ideas, meaning and techniques behind the world's masterpieces, with a hefty dose of fun along the way. Much more than a basic history of art, this fascinating book will teach you how colour works, how to have a profound experience in an art gallery, and where to see the best art in the world.
