Review:

"The authors have a wonderful ability to encapsulate an idea, and a conversational tone that is expressed in an admirable writing style of pointed brevity." ― Kenneth Burchett, University of Central Arkansas

From the Back Cover:

The Art of Seeing, now in its sixth edition, is an Art Appreciation textbook written from an artist's point of view. It presents a wide range of images in different media by women and men across many cultures. Written in very accessible language, it includes:

  • Artists' own words about their work, giving students insight into art from the artists' point of view. Topics include Georgia O'Keeffe on "Abstraction," Leonardo da Vinci on "Chiaroscuro," and Josef Albers on "Seeing Colors."
  • Art Issues boxes explore areas of controversy in the contemporary art scene.
  • The World Seen boxes examine an art form that has been highly developed in a particular time and place, such as the brush and ink paintings of Sung China and the precious metalwork of Tsarist Russia.
NEW TO THIS EDITION
  • 70 new color images
  • Updated coverage of contemporary trends such as installation art, video, and performance art
  • Enhanced multicultural coverage with new content on contemporary Vietnamese, Indian, Chinese, Native American, and African art
  • Three new Art Issues boxes: "Preserving Ephemeral Materials," "Looting of Art Treasures," and "The Camera Obscura: A Trade Secret?"
  • New The World Seen box: "The Hidden Temples of Angkor"
  • Improved design and layout create an extremely user-friendly text
