The 13TH ENHANCED EDITION of GARDNER'S ART THROUGH THE AGES: A GLOBAL HISTORY takes this brilliant bestseller to new heights in addressing the challenges of today's classroom.

These bonus images are complemented by groundbreaking media support for students including video study tools and a robust eBook.
The superior quality of its photos and illustrations is one of the principal reasons that the Department of Art History has consistently used Art through the Ages. John Kenfield - Rutgers University
Three strengths of Gardner's are: the choice of imagery discussed; the quality and size of the images, and the clarity; and detail of the discussion which includes a strong balance between style and history. Angi Elsea Bourgeois - Mississippi State University
