Description

For two-semester survey courses in Art History and for Introductory Art courses taught from a historical perspective. The definitive survey of the Western Art tradition-the standard by which all other art history surveys are measured-this classic text uses an exceptional art program, impeccable scholarship, rich color, accurate five-color illustrations, and student-friendly pedagogy to introduce readers to the vast world of painting, sculpture, architecture, photography, and the minor arts. With its effectively written, balanced, and interesting narrative, it presents art as a succession of styles-from Prehistory through the 20th century-and enlarges students' capacity to appreciate works of art individually, not merely to accumulate data about them.show more
