The world of art can be an intimidating one at times. With so many artists, so many works, so many mediums and periods – it can be difficult to get informed, without getting overwhelmed. 

Enter the 50… You Should Know book series by Prestel. These books beautifully capture and summarise important aspects of our creative culture. History’s most significant paintings, photographers, architects, designers and more line their pages in a concise, informative and fascinating way – and get you up to speed on some of the most influential art and artists throughout time. 

For five centuries, British art has dominated our cultural heritage. Tracking British art from the Victorian era through to the post-war British modernists and the best contemporary British artists, 50 British Artists You Should Know is a highly accessible way to gain a meaningful understanding of some of history's most incredible artists, including Francis Bacon, Turner, Damien Hirst and Banksy.
