Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The 'Art News' boxes are great. They make the work being discussed relevant, and give the reader fun facts that aren't traditionally included in an art history text."

"It is a very well written book, very informative and conversational at times and the language doesn't try to go over the heads of the students or to condescend. Well done."
