9780155037526: Gardner's Art through the ages

In the mid 1920's a teacher at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago had a vision to provide students and instructors with a textbook that would introduce them to the artistic legacy of not only Europe, but of the entire globe. In 1926, Harcourt Brace and Company published that vision - ART THROUGH THE AGES. Since that time, Helen Gardner's vision has been the leader in educating students about the artistic legacy of the world. For the past 75 years, ART THROUGH THE AGES has defined the introductory art history course. The intention of this classic, in Helen Gardner's words, has been "to introduce the reader to certain phases of art, architecture, painting, sculpture, and the minor arts from the remote days of the glacial age in Europe, through successive civilizations of the Near East, Europe, America, and the Orient, to the twentieth century." Now, as we begin a new millennium, we do so with the eleventh edition. This text is more accessible and easier to read for students, but does not compromise the richness of the Gardner tradition.

Review:

"Fred S. Kleiner received his Ph.D. in art history and archaeology from Columbia University. Author of more than a hundred publications on classical art and architecture, he also served as Editor-in-Chief of the American Journal of Archaeology from 1985-1998. He has taught the art history survey course for more than a quarter century at the University of Virginia and at Boston University, where he is currently Professor of Art History and Archaeology. Long recognized for his inspiring lectures and devotion to students, Professor Kleiner won Boston University's prestigious Metcalf Award for Excellence in Teaching as well as the College Prize for Undergraduate Advising in the Humanities in 2002."
