Taschen Basic Art Series

The series began in 1985 with the very first original Taschen publication and inaugural Basic Art title, Picasso. Since then 200 titles, translated into some 20 languages, have offered an introductory who’s who of art history, architecture, and design, claiming to be the world’s best-selling art book collection.

Each title from the Basic Art Series provides a comprehensive introduction to a significant artist, architect, or designer. The publications offer a detailed chronological summary of the artist’s life and work and analyse their historical importance and cultural legacy. Readers are taken through the subjects’ biographies and become familiar with key works illustrated in high quality reproductions. From Bauhaus to Basquiat, the series includes books on Bacon, Eames, Gaudí, Haring, de Lempicka, Dalí, Klimt, Koons, Leonardo da Vinci, Monet, O’Keeffe, Kahlo, Mies van der Rohe, Pop Art, Rothko, Surrealism and much more.
