"Rich in ideas and illustrations...of interest to scholars and art enthusiasts alike."—Library Journal
Adopted at over four hundred colleges and universities since its first publication in 1994, this book has established itself as the most popular and highly regarded textbook in the field. It embraces many aspects of the new, revised art history (its attention to issues of class and gender; its critiques of racism and Eurocentrism), but it also emphasizes the remarkable vitality and subversiveness that constitute the legacy of the best nineteenth-century art.
The third edition incorporates new chapters on design and architecture; increased coverage of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and Naturalism in Germany; and a new discussion of the Vienna Secession and the challenges to Academic painting in Russia.
Stephen F. Eisenman is Professor of Art History at Northwestern University
Frances K. Pohl is the Dr. Mary Ann Vanderzyl Reynolds Professor of Humanities and Professor of Art History at Pomona College in Claremont, California. She received her Ph.D. from the University of California, Los Angeles. Since moving to Pomona in 1985, she has taught a wide variety of courses in nineteenth- and twentieth-century North American art. Her work has focused on the art of the United States, in particular the work of Ben Shahn, about whom she has written two books, and the relationship between the visual arts and working-class culture. Professor Pohl has taught in the United States for many years, but her Canadian origins give her a unique continental perspective on American art.
