The images in this book are drawn from Frederick J. Brown's The History of Art (1994/2000), on permanent display in the Kemper Museum's popular Café Sebastienne. Each painting in The History of Art represents an important movement or figure in art throughout the ages. Brown painted many works in the style of various artists from art history.
