  • A Fast History of Art: From the Cave to the Computer

  • By: Eric Vinc3nt
  • Narrated by: Eric Vinc3nt

  • Unabridged

    5 out of 5 stars 2

A freewheeling, wide ranging, irreverent, and subversively brief writing on the subject of art by a critically acclaimed writer-artist. Kirkus Review has said of Eric's writing, "Vinc3nt's solid prose demonstrates a considerable command of geography, history, and international affairs." The Philadelphia Inquirer, America's third oldest daily newspaper, with 20 Pulitzer Prizes to its name, has said, "Vincent speaks not only for himself, but for a whole generation of transmedia storytellers."

I really enjoyed the author and narrator's observations on art throughout time.
The book was perceptive sensitive and at moments quite funny in a dry humor sort of way.
The author takes a look at the art and the viewer. Giving you the intelligent perspective as well as the naive somewhat ignorant points of view coming from the masses going to museums and galleries etc..
The music in the background is exceptional. I understand the author narrator is also an accomplished musician. Kind of a renaissance man.
Well worth it to buy this book. It will be a companion to anyone who loves art or just a curious bystander.
I highly recommend it.
