Why A World of Art? Henry Sayre wrote the first edition of World of Art because he wanted to use a text in his own art appreciation course that truly represented all artists, not just the Western canon found at that time in the other texts. He also wanted a text that fostered critical thinking through looking at, talking about, and questioning works of art for his students. We are proud to present the new sixth edition of World of Art, which further strengthens these two key aspects of the text while presenting hot topics like video and time-based media.

Student Feedback on the new 6th edition of A World of Art:
Hi Mr. Sayre,
I've just completed a class through Indiana University and wanted to take a moment to write you.
The text book for this class was your "A World of Art" and I want you to know how much I enjoyed your book. I'm sure you don't get many emails thanking you for your textbook, but I find myself compelled to write.
Throughout the class I was struck by how easy you made art to understand. I found each chapter almost like having a conversation with a professor and thought you might like to hear that one student out there very much appreciated the way you approached your writing.
Oddly, I am originally from Oregon, living in Philadelphia, and taking an Art course at Indiana University...what a small world we all live in!
Sending my best and wanting you to know that your textbook is one that, rather than return for half credit, I'll happily keep on my bookshelf.
