Overview

This classic art history survey text has sold more than two million copies since it was first published in 1926. The ideal text for the full-year art history course, it surveys the entire span of Western art from prehistory to the present and offers overviews of significant areas of non-Western art. Heightened visual appeal and superior accuracy of color resulting from printing at 175-line screen resolution. Addition of new maps, timelines, and improved photographic views. Reorganized, expanded, and revised chapters in Part One reflect significant changes in the field of ancient art over the last decade. (New co-author Fred S. Kleiner, Classical scholar, is Editor-in-Chief of the American Journal of Archaeology, the official journal of the Archaeological Institute of America.) Increased attention to social and political context of works of art in the ancient world. Presentation of more classical works of art created for non-elite patrons. Reorganized Early Christian, Islamic, and Byzantine material. Expanded coverage of Chinese art and introduction of Korean art. Expanded coverage of Mayan ceramics and stelae, new coverage of Peruvian textiles and Colombian goldwork. Revision of African art, updated in a separate chapter with twice as many images as the previous edition. Reorganized chapters covering Northern and Italian Renaissance. Increased coverage of women and minority artists. Totally reorganized eighteenth-, nineteenth- and twentieth-century material; many new images from nineteenth- and twentieth-century artists.
