Review:

“Extraordinarily useful and necessary for any class in art history!”

-         Johanna Movassat, San Jose State University

“A step-by-step guide, incorporating both theory and practice, to critically thinking and writing about art.”

-         Janet Carpenter, City College of San Francisco

 

“An extremely useful book for art history students at all levels of study.”

-         Melissa Dabakis, Kenyon College

 

 “I find the text to be fundamental in teaching students to write. It is concise enough to cover in a course on a particular art historical topic without overtaking the topic itself. It is always my secondary text.”

-         Rebecca Trittel, Savannah College of Art and Design

 

“Excellent definitive source on writing about art for the advanced student.”

-         Carey Rote, Texas A & M University-Corpus Christi
