it was amazing
bookshelves: art, history, religion, symbolism

Put briefly, this book is very interesting and contains amazing paintings by some of Europe's great artists. True, the pictures are sometimes very small and you almost need a magnifying glass to see the details, but the main aim with the book is another - i.e. to explain also the symbolism hidden in the paintings. If you like a particular painting, you should try to find a book with that particular artist or try to visit museum where the painting is situated (information about this is in the book; I particularly want to visit Prado to see some of the amazing Bosch paintings). You don't have to be a christian to enjoy this book - I myself am not! - but simply be interested in the christian psyche. When reading Dante, for example, this book is a great reference book to have at your side. Warmly recommended!
