YA-- Every inch of space in these wonderful introductions is covered with an illustration--even the title and copyright pages. Primary sources, both written and visual, explain the subjects. Each double-page topic treatment opens with a concise summary, and related accompanying full-color illustrations and reproductions are explained in full paragraphs. Discussions on how to analyze the various works are also included. A paintbrush symbol identifies specific techniques or touches used in individual paintings. The chronology enables readers to focus on specific events that may be missed in the text.
