9780047010101: History of Art: A Students' Handbook

This completely revised and updated edition of Marcia Pointon's guide introduces school and undergraduate students to the kinds of practices, challenges and questions that they will encounter in studying the history of art. Marcia Pointon vividly conveys the excitement of Art History as a multi-faceted discipline addressing all aspects of the study of media, communication and representation. She describes and analyses different methods and approaches to the discipline - structuralism, post-structuralism, Marxism, psychoanalysis - explaining the history of these differences and their effects of the day-today learning process. She also discusses the relationship of Art History to related disciplines including film, literature, design history and anthropology. The Handbook covers training and vocational aspects of Art History, providing a wealth of information on the different kinds of courses available and on the relationship between, for example, museum and gallery work and academic art history. The third edition includes: * Discussion of recent debates and the New Art History' * Twenty brand new illustrations * Guide to careers in art history
