The (True!) History of Art
Sylvain Coissard and Alex Lemoine
In a series of hilarious parodies, Sylvain Coissard and Alexis Lemoine answer the nagging questions of art history: what caused The Scream? Why is Van Gogh's Yellow Bedroom so suspiciously tidy? Why is Cezanne wearing a bandage in his famous self-portrait? This book is for anyone who wants to know what happened before the Mona Lisa smiled. Or, rather, what might have happened.
Sylvain Coissard (Author) is a literary agent specializing in children's books and graphic novels. He lives in Nimes, France. This is his first book. Alexis Lemoine (Author & Designer) studied at the Estienne art school in Paris and, in 1997, became a professional illustrator. He works for the French press (notably Liberation) and designs book covers and CDs. He lives in Paris, France.
