What is art and where did it begin? Why do we make it and why does it change? These are some of the questions that Julian Bell considers in his new book Mirror of the World: A New History of Art. Bell, himself a painter and teacher of art history, takes a global perspective on humankind’s universal creative instinct. Bell presents his work in an illustrated lecture, from the very beginnings of art with cave drawings to the present day.
Julian Bell is a well-known painter and author. His books include Bonnard and What is Painting, which was published to enormous acclaim in 1999. www.jbell.co.uk.
