Synopsis: Appropriate for one-semester art history surveys or historically-focused art appreciation classes, "A History of Western Art, Fourth Edition", offers an exciting new CD-ROM, additional color plates, and a number of new features. Focusing on the Western canon of art history, the text presents a compelling chronological narrative from prehistory to the present. A new non-Western supplement, "World Views: Topics in Non-Western Art", addresses specific areas of non-Western art and augments the Western chronology by illustrating moments of thematic relationships and cross-cultural contact.
