Marilyn Stokstadís brief introduction is based on the belief that art books should nurture and grow the publicís enthusiasm for the arts. Only then will they learn to appreciate art as the most tangible creation of the human imagination.
Drawing on 40 years of experience of presenting art to the public, Stokstad has produced a sensitive, engaging, and comprehensive book that looks at art in all of its diversity, from paintings and architecture to tapestries, jewelry and electronic art. The book includes art from all over the world and treats the subject within the essential contexts of history, geography, sociology, politics, religion, and other arts being made at the time.
