Picture This

Author(s): Molly Bang

Art History

Molly Bang's brilliant, insightful, and accessible treatise is now revised and expanded for its 25th anniversary. Bang's powerful ideasâabout how the visual composition of images works to engage the emotions, and how the elements of an artwork can give it the power to tell a storyâremain unparalleled in their simplicity and genius. Why are diagonals dramatic? Why are curves calming? Why does red feel hot and blue feel cold? First published in 1991, Picture This has changed the way artists, illustrators, reviewers, critics and readers look at and understand art.
