Description

Product Description Appropriate for one-semester art history surveys or historically-focused art appreciation classes, A History of Western Art, Revised Fourth Edition, features additional color which provides students with a greater understanding of the works of art. Focusing on the Western canon of art history, the text presents a compelling chronological narrative from prehistory to the present. A non-Western supplement, World Views: Topics in Non-Western Art, addresses specific areas of non-Western art and augments the Western chronology by illustrating moments of thematic relationships and cross-cultural contact. World Views is available at a discount when packaged with A History of Western Art. About the Author Laurie Schneider Adams received a Ph.D. in Art History from Columbia University.
