The text engagingly and effectively combines analytical discussions with an expansive collection of vivid, illuminating illustrations that teach students the major developments of art, painting, and architecture that emerged from seventeenth-century Western Europe, as well as the socio-political and cultural background of the period.

    Wouldn't know

    I never even received my textbook and wasn't granted a refund until a month later. The class I needed this book for held its midterm 2 days after I had to go buy a new one, just in case it maraculously arrived. No such luck.
