Product Description:

This is an introductory survey of the history of Western art from the ancient to the modern world. Focusing on art before 1520, this edition organizes the material chronologically. It now incorporates considerable new material on the history of music and theatre, and updates scholarship on ancient art, examining which battle the Nike of Samothrace commemorates, and addressing the question of the debt of Roman painting to Greek art.
