9780130620842: Art Past Art Present

This accessible book looks at the historical and cultural contexts of art works and architecture around the world from prehistoric times to the 20th century—with detailed and informative analyses of art, artists, patrons, and techniques. Its unique chronological presentation in compact topical units offers an exceptionally easy-to-use format—with general period/style introductions followed by self-contained sections on a selected number of specific representative pieces. The global focus emphasizes the diversity and commonality of the human experience. A fully integrated, chronological history of art covers all periods, places, and arts—including extensive analyses of European art, and some American, African, Mesoamerican, and Asian art—along with thorough coverage of women artists throughout. For those who appreciate art and its history.
