9780131892620: A World of Art (Revised 4th Edition)

For courses in Art Appreciation. A World of Art teaches students how artists create by helping them understand that creativity starts with critical thinking. By guiding students through a rich array of aesthetic elements and artistic media, along with an overview of art history, this text encourages students to develop an appreciation for a diverse range of art. Author Henry M. Sayre demystifies the creative process by showing how artists use critical thinking and problem solving to create great works of art. Studying art also requires critical thinking and problem solving, and this text shows students how to use these skills to understand and explore the world of art.

From the Publisher:

An exceptionally lively and varied introduction to art appreciation, this text -- and outstanding multimedia supplements package -- is designed around the cornerstones of the Western artistic tradition but juxtaposes other not-so-well-known works and works from other traditions to show how special and unique the Western tradition is in many of its assumptions.

From the Back Cover:

Key Benefit: Designed around the cornerstones of the Western artistic tradition but juxtaposes other not-so-well-known works and works from other traditions to show how special and unique the Western tradition is in many of its assumptions. Key Topics: Features a series of over 30 two-page spreads Works in Progress that gives insight into the process of artistic creation. Many of the spreads focus on accepted masterpieces ranging from Pablo Picasso's Les Demoiselles d'Avignon and Henri Matisse's Dance II to Albrecht Dürer's Adam and Eve and Raphael's Alba Madonna.. The book further highlights 11 of the artists and their work in the accompanying video series. It integrates discussions of world art into the narrative itself (rather than isolating in sidebars), and reorganizes content into 20 chapters (rather than 9) with an abundance of new subheadings that make the relationship between different themes, techniques, and periods clearer.
