The true history of art is not solely about art-historical 'isms' or complicated academic discussions. Rather, it often revolves around significant firsts - an artist's first self-portrait, the first portrayal of a smile, the first depiction of a physical location, the first feminist piece, and the first anti-war creation.

Art is constantly evolving and revolutionizing itself through groundbreaking creative leaps. Art Firsts presents a collection of 30 of these pioneering firsts, revealing a unique perspective on the world of art and providing insight into its origins and relevance. Each piece is presented in an easily understandable manner and is accompanied by striking illustrations and examples of how subsequent artists were influenced by them. With a refreshing and intriguing narrative, Art Firsts delves into the significance of masterpieces and showcases the brilliance of artistic innovation.
