Question
i want to know the names of few books which i can study to understand art and appreciate it.

Answer
Hello Shambhavi,

I can perhaps recommend the following books:

1.  The Story of Art by E.H. Gombrich
2.  Teh Art Book by Editors of Phaidon Press
3.  Art: Over 2,500 Works from Cave to Contemporary by Andrew Graham-Dixon
4.  The gate of appreciation: Studies in the relation of art to life by Carleton Eldredge Noyes

I hope that these can of assistance.  I can also recommend touring museum and gallery websites as many offer educational and informative resources that can help you understand and appreciate artwork.

Sincererly,

Andrew Evans
