Overview

"Art Past Art Present brings to life the history of art, from prehistoric times to the present day, with analyses of works of art, artists, patrons, and techniques from around the world." With a new design and many new illustrations, this edition retains the elements that have been justly praised in earlier editions: introductory overviews offering a Brief Insight into each major period; Timelines which further enhance our understanding of the historical, geographical and cultural context of artworks; over twenty color maps; boxed essays on Techniques in art and architecture; Art Past Art Present boxes, illuminating the relationship between the art being discussed and our modern world; a series of Theme Spreads presenting groups of works from different periods and locations that can be more fully understood when seen in the context of other works representing the same theme. The authors have made liberal use of quotation from historical documents, and key terms are highlighted and defined in the Glossary.
