For two-semester courses in Art History Survey, Global Art History, and for Introductory Art courses taught from a historical perspective.

Exceptional in scholarship and pedagogically in tune with the needs of today's students-rich but never effete-Marilyn Stokstad's Art History is the art history text of choice for a new generation of teachers and students. Presenting a broad view of art through the centuries, it introduces beginning students in a positive and sympathetic manner to the works of all artists. This includes women and artists of color, and the arts of other continents and regions in addition to those of Western Europe and the United States. Balancing both the traditions of art history and new trends of the present, Art History is the most comprehensive, accessible, and magnificently illustrated work of its kind.
