As fascinating as a real visit to the world's famous museums and architectural sites, GARDNER'S ART THROUGH THE AGES: THE WESTERN PERSPECTIVE gives you a comprehensive, beautifully illustrated tour of the world's great artistic traditions--plus all the study tools you need to excel in your art history course!

Review:

"Gardner's presents a narrative that runs like a thread of unity through the text."

"I examined the options, and found Gardner's to be the best in giving the students the best images and the clearest discussion of both style and historical context."

"What I particularly like about the Gardner is its flexibility for a variety of pedagogical/methodological/thematic approaches, which is due to the depth of its coverage of certain very pivotal figures/moments/issues in western art history."
