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.
