10: Artworks That Changed The World

10: Artworks That Changed The World

Artworks can be shocking, outrageous, breath-taking and rule-breaking. But some go even further and manage to leave a legacy so powerful, it can be called world-changing. This book looks at 10 of these artworks – from the prehistoric cave paintings in Lascaux that revealed to us how innate art really is to being human, to Banksy’s Sweeping it Under the Carpet, which used art as a political statement, painted on a gallery wall.

Each of the 10 world-changing pieces of art is examined in detail – who was the artist; how was it created; what kind of a legacy has it left; and how is it still relevant to us today?

Spanning human history, from anonymous cave paintings in 15,000 BCE, to Renaissance Italy, Pop art in the 1960s and modern-day installations, this book not only examines the incredible art created during this time, but also places it in the context of historical events.

The artworks include paintings, sculptures, installations and graffiti.

Perfect for course work and cross-curricular activities spanning history, art and politics; the book includes 10 further influential pieces of art, as well as a timeline that places the artwork in the context of world history.
