Author intro
This book intends to give those who are in need of a strange and fascinating field inkling to readers. This book to show beginners facts, and not let the reader up details confused; can help beginners full force, so that the goal of higher book page names, too many to count period and style make clear clue, lay the foundation for more specialized reference books. Writing this book, I first thought is just found alone the art world of the juvenile readers. However, I always think that young people to read the book not unlike adults book; just give young people read the book can not consider those demanding critics blame, slightly about terms or make grand gestures of acting, they aware immediately, and cherish a deep-seated hatred for. I know from experience, once the book has the disadvantages, the reader later life will doubt all art works. I have a genuine and sincere desire to avoid those demons, even though the book's argument sounds just about the layman, still adhere to the language simple. Even so, I did not evade the problems difficult to understand, so I hope that readers do not misunderstand me, not because I decided to minimize the use of idioms in the art historian, that what I have told him "hangs teaching". Some people abuse "scientific" language, is not intended to inspire readers, but to readers for their register profound respect, it is not their superior, sitting on the cloud to the US "hangs teaching"? In addition to less use of terminology decision, in writing this book, I have tried to follow some more specific law criterion; follow those rules to make this author was very difficult, but it may be easier for readers. The first rule I follow is that I can't use illustrations, copy works will not be discussed; I don't want to make this book reduced to list list. The list to not know about the works of people simply don't make sense, to know about the works of people is redundant. The scope of this rule directly limit the discussion I can artists and works of art, can not exceed the number of book illustrations to income. This forced me more strictly consider what to say, what do not speak. There are second rules, I can only discuss real works of art in this book, the exclusion of all only as a taste or fashion specimens can be some interesting works at. This decision requires sacrifice considerable literary taste. To know more praise than criticism boring, while the book income of some queer-looking amusing things could relieve the spirit. But if I do that, the reader will have plenty of reasons to question me, since the book is only about art and non art is not about [non-art], then why do I have seen some works disgusting let it occupies a floor, in the book especially, if the revenue it will miss a true masterpiece. Therefore, although I have no claim to book the works are representative of the highest levels of perfect work, but I did try to eliminate all I don't think the unique value of works. The third rule also requires some self - restraint. I swore in the selection of works not to be tempted by the idea of do what others have never done before, to avoid It is evident to anyone's masterpiece was out of my personal favorite works. This book is not only the intention. Beautiful works of art, but write for those seeking a new way in the field of human. For them, that seems to be "old" example has a familiar pattern, can be used as a signpost welcome. Moreover, the most prestigious works often use many criteria to measure is the greatest works. If this book can help the readers with a new perspective to watch them, that may prove to be better, than I included some not famous masterpiece and ignore them.

"The history of the development of" art with traditional "knowledge" and "see" the difference as the outline, outline the development course of art from conceptual methods rely on the "knowledge" of the original and the Egyptians to successfully recorded the "Impressionism see" the scheme. However, in the last chapter, the author proposed a bold idea, stultify oneself impressionism scheme nature destroys the premise of art theory, "the most influential twentieth Century art and illusion". If the "art of the story" is the traditional use of hypothesis to art history on the visual nature, so "art and illusion" is the use of art history to explore and test the hypothesis framework itself. Therefore, it is a companion piece.
