The Janson name is synonymous with the definitive survey of Western art, and each edition of this matchless classic is richer than the one before.Added to the Fifth Edition Revised are more than 40 concise discussions of cultural developments paralleling movements in art, from ancient Greek times through our own Postmodern era. These masterly entries focus mainly on music and theater, yet also include topics such as Greek and Roman mythology, Christian iconography, Western monastic orders, and medieval guilds. These new features enrich the updated and reworked text and the 115 primary source readings that are unique to History of Art.The quality of the book's 736 sumptuous five-color reproductions and more than 500 rich black-and-white illustrations--printed on fine matte-coated paper--far surpasses that found in any other large survey. A gazetteer of significant art museums and architectural sites has been added, joining the outstanding bibliography and glossary of terms. Not one of History of Art's many imitators approaches it in its comprehension of the Western tradition, its clarity of expression, or its physical beauty as an artbook.H. W. Janson was professor of fine arts at New York University and its graduate center, the Institute of Fine Arts. A leader among American art historians, he changed the course of art history in 1962 with the First Edition of History of Art.Anthony F. Janson, chairman of the Department of Art and Theater at the University of North Carolina in Wilmington, collaborated with his father on the Third Editions of History of Art and History of Art for Young People and has been the sole revising author of both since 1982.
