Chronologically presents the arts as integral parts of the lives, times, and places of the artists and peoples who created them. This best-selling Western humanities text explores the major styles as they appear in painting, sculpture, architecture, literature, music, and philosophy from antiquity to the present. Using lively anecdotes, Fleming shows how they are linked together by common purposes, themes, and ideas. Features: * Chronological timelines in each chapter give students a handy reference for simultaneous understanding of art, political and social events. * The IDEAS section at the end of each chapter give chapters a sense of unity. * Beautiful four-colour reproductions of art are integrated throughout the text. New to this edition: * Increased coverage of women and minorities. * Chronologies updated to include non-Western events in history and art. * New pronunciation guide. * Increased slide package from 75 to 100 slides. * Concluding chapter contains sections on Romare Bearden, Carrie May Weems, deconstructivism and Globalism. * Nine new maps (with a total of 21) provide students with a geographic reference.
