GARDNER'S ART THROUGH THE AGES: THE WESTERN PERSPECTIVE, Fourteenth Edition, provides you with a comprehensive, beautifully illustrated tour of the world's great artistic traditions! Easy to read and understand, the fourteenth edition of the most widely read art history book in the English language continues to evolve, providing a rich cultural backdrop for each of the covered periods and geographical locations, and incorporating new artists and art forms--all reproduced according to the highest standards of clarity and color fidelity. A complete online environment, including all images and an eBook, is also available. The unique scale feature will help you better visualize the actual size of the artworks shown in the book. Within each chapter, the "Framing the Era" overviews, a new timeline, and the chapter-ending section entitled "The Big Picture", make it easier to understand the cultural and historical forces that influenced each artwork. Use the Museum index to find the works in the book before your next museum visit.

Review:

"I love the addition of the scales -- very helpful. I like the way that Gardner walks students through a visual analysis after first elaborating on the historical context. I think this is the textbook's greatest strength."

"One of the most outstanding differences [between Gardner's and other art history texts] is the accessibility of the text. The text . . . is very streamlined. It simplifies the material . . . and the organization is more logical."
