Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
As every book tells a story, every book in art is part of an intriguing, engaging, and relatable image. Books are depicted as indicators of intellect in portraits, as symbols of piety in religious paintings, as subjects in still lifes, and as the raw material for contemporary installations. 'Reading Art' spotlights artworks from museums and collections around the globe, creating a gorgeous, inspiring homage to both the written word and to its pivotal role in the visual world: "A visual compendium of art celebrating books and reading, featuring works by over 250 artists throughout history."
