In tune with today's readers–rich but never effete–this is the art history book of choice for a new generation. Presenting a broad view of art from prehistory through the Gothic Age, it sympathetically and positively introduces the works of all artists. This includes women, artists of color, and the arts of other continents and regions, as well as those of Western Europe and the United States. The new edition contains even more full-color reproductions, larger images, redrawn maps and timelines, and new photographs and higher quality images. Balancing both the traditions of art history and new trends of the present, Art History is the most comprehensive, accessible, and magnificently illustrated work of its kind. Broad in scope and depth, this beautifully illustrated work features art from the following time periods and places: prehistory; art of the ancients (Near East, Egypt, the Aegean, Greece, Etruscan, and Roman); early Christian, Jewish, and Byzantine art; Islamic art; India before 1100; Chinese art before 1280; Japanese art before 1392; art of the Americas before 1300; the art of ancient Africa; early Medieval European art; Romanesque art, and Gothic art. An excellent reference work and beautiful edition for any visual artist.

This textbook was required by a class and panicked when I saw the prices for buying it. Being able to rent it cut the price to a third and made it affordable. Had I realized the quality of the info and the readability of the text, I might have considered continuing the search for a cheaper used copy to purchase, rather than rent. $60 for a rental is a lot and most textbooks I've found are not worth that. This one would be worth buying for that price (but not the almost $300 a new one goes for). Because mine was used, it did not include the MyArtsLab disk. I could have purchased it for $100, but after discussing it with my professor, decided to take the risk that I might not have access to some info and risk a lower grade. She didn't think it would cost me more than a letter grade. She was right. I was able to use what was in the book to learn the material and write the thorough critiques/comparisons she expected for class.I had to do some small amount of Internet searching for the extra insights needed for some of the assignments, but I was able to easily find what I needed in the book, without the expensive "publisher's content" available with the MyArtsLab purchase. (I made an A!)

I took two Art History classes that used these books, volume 1 and 2.

I've kept both of them and am re-reading them and looking through them long after finishing those classes.

After buying these I found that for the same price you can get a version of these volumes that comes with either a CD or access to materials on-line (I've forgotten which)...so look for that if you are planning a purchase.

Otherwise these books are generally well laid out and have a wealth of information on the various eras and subjects they cover.

A great read! Tons of information I haven't noticed until now. I knew only a fraction of the information before hand and this does a great job bridging it all together. Good for basic introduction into art history. For a master's program find something else.

Book came quickly, described accurately by vendor, just expensive for its size and I think it's part of the original volume, which I think is now split into three volumes, making it a bit more expensive. On the other hand, it's a good book, lots of pics and text anayzing the pics. I feel like I got my money's worth
  • Tetaian
This book offers a fascinating glimpse into a vast array of human cultures and the ways they have expressed themselves through art over millennia. After you read it, you may catch yourself evaluating what type of columns your local administrative buildings use, or recognizing technical terms in everyday places you never noticed before. It's quite an interesting jaunt through the little corners of humankind's creative history.

They need a thesaurus, though. You're going to see the word sumptuous about 10 times per chapter.

One of the nicest textbooks I have ever used! The text was interesting and very readable, the maps and history really added to the art. The only drawback, and it is a biggie in an art book, is the printing. The pictures of the subject art MUST be exactly of the piece being described. Fail!

Unfortunately the colors in this entire book are off. The described "midnight blue sky" is BLACK. "The lovely pink stone" is TAN. The "rich red of the tapesty" is ORANGE and I could go on. What I had to do was look up the works of art on my computer to see what they REALLY looked like. Such a shame when you have good, descriptive text on high quality thick pages.

It makes me wonder if the fact that this has a Pearson Art Lab available for it if they are not concerning themselves with the text and only making sure the electronic version is correct? That would be dirty pool for students such as myself who barely afford our text books and don't purchase the Pearson when it is optional.

On the plus side, this book came from URent and was advertised as used. I kid you not, this text book was absolutely pristine in condition, in fact it was far better than the "New" textbook I received from Amazon for another class. This book looked brand new when I received it and I can't say enough good things about URent.

I purchased this textbook when I was working on my Associates degree. It was a required material, but for once in my school career I actually really enjoyed the book. It was full of interesting information and beautiful artwork. I would definitely recommend this book for learning purposes.
Very interesting and informative textbook for learning about art history. I was required to purchase this book for a class I took while working on my Associates degree and I was actually impressed with the textbook, which lets be honest...that isn't usually the case. It is full of interesting information as well as beautiful artwork. I would definitely recommend this textbook for anyone who wants to learn more about art history.
