The superior quality of its photos and illustrations is one of the principal reasons that the Department of Art History has consistently used Art through the Ages. John Kenfield - Rutgers University
Three strengths of Gardner's are: the choice of imagery discussed; the quality and size of the images, and the clarity; and detail of the discussion which includes a strong balance between style and history. Angi Elsea Bourgeois - Mississippi State University
