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.
