Future art majors can rejoice in a pair of new titles. Cave Paintings to Picasso: The Inside Scoop on 50 Masterpieces by Henry Sayre chronicles major artistic achievements from prehistory to modernity. A running timeline marks the edges of each spread, which begins with the Woman from Brassempouy, "the earliest known representation of a human face," carved from the tusk of a wooly mammoth (c. 22,000 B.C.), and continues through such works as Andy Warhol's Campbell Soup Can paintings and Ren? Magritte's The Son of Man (1964). Crisp photos reproduce the artwork alongside accessible commentary. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
