The Knowledge: Awful Art

Long ago, the first cave-dwellers hid their mammoth doodles in dark, damp caves. Today, almost anything can be art – building bricks, half a cow, even a bin full of rubbish! In this funny guide to the freaky world of art, you’ll meet rich artists, poor artists, dead artists … and artists who really made an exhibition of themselves. Find out about some naughty forgers and fraudsters who brushed with the law, see whether YOU have the world-famous “artistic temperament”, and find out how to create your own priceless masterpieces!
