Phaidon Focus is a groundbreaking new series that offers accessible, enjoyable and thought-provoking books on the visual arts.

Written by experts in their field, each of these lively and beautifully illustrated books, covers the entirety of the artist's work, exploring its origins, development, style and themes.

Although each book is a self-sufficient survey of its subject, the series has been carefully planned to build into a complete introduction to the visual arts.

Each book consists of a chronological essay, addressing the full span of the art, accompanied by the 'Focus' sections, targeting specific themes and most important groups of work.

Completely up-to-date and comprehensive, these books are essential reading for students and rewarding for anyone curious about art.

The collection includes:

Francis Bacon
Joseph Beuys
Richard Estes
Jasper Johns

"Satisfyingly hardback yet not too hefty. Tastefully simple, encased in a plastic cover to protect them from all those crayons and paints that you're sure to whip out in a frenzy of inspiration after browsing these pages. Each contains a trove of images of artwork and educational focus chapters on themes and techniques." —It's Nice That
