About this title

Synopsis:

This classic art history survey text has sold more than two million copies since it was first published in 1926. The ideal text for the full-year history course, it surveys the entire span of Western art from prehistory to the present and offers overviews of significant areas of non-Western art. Features: * New to this edition: * Increased number of illustrations, more in colour. * Heightened visual appeal and superior accuracy of colour resulting from printing at 175-line screen resolution. * Addition of new maps, timelines, and improved photographic views. * Reorganized, expanded, and revised chapters in Part One reflect significant changes in the field of ancient art over the last decade. (Author Fred S. Kleiner, Classical scholar, is Editor-in-Chief of the American Journal of Archaeology, the official journal of the Archaeological Institute of America). * Inclusion of more art from North American museums facilitates students' viewing of actual works. * Inclusion of many new views of previously illustrated monuments. * Increased attention to social and political context of works of art in the ancient world. * Presentation of more classical works of art created for non-elite patrons. * Reorganized by Early Christian, Islamic, and Byzantine material. * Addition of twenty-eight new line art figures. * Expanded coverage of Chinese art and introduction of Korean art. * Expanded coverage of Mayan ceramics ans stelae, new coverage of Peruvian textiles and Colombian goldwork. * Revision of African art, updated in a separate chapter with twice as many images as the previous edition. * Reorganized chapters covering Northern and Italian Renaissance. * Reorganized coverage of eighteenth-century material. * Increased coverage of women and minority artists. * Totally reorganized nineteenth- and twentieth-century material, many new images from nineteenth- and twentieth-century artists.

From Library Journal:

Tansey and Kleiner have collaborated on the most thorough revision since 1970 of one of the central monuments of art-historical study. Extensively reorganized and rewritten, this massive book now contains five more chapters than the 9th edition. Among the beneficiaries are both African and Etruscan art, which each have their own chapter for the first time. Somewhat larger, more colorful illustrations, maps, and chronologies add to the overall improved look of this new version. As before, the prose is dense but readable, focusing primarily on appreciative descriptions of exemplary works and emphasizing the periodicity of artistic style. In a new concluding chapter, the authors acknowledge recent revisionist challenges to this more traditional approach. It's a cursory tip of the hat to postmodernism, followed by unconvincing attempts to legislate categories within the art of the 1980s and 1990s. Far better is the way most of the book deals with earlier eras, so that this remains the benchmark text against which all other general surveys can be measured. An improvement upon an already first-rate work; highly recommended.?Douglas F. Smith, Oakland P.L., Cal.
