In tune with today's readers–rich but never effete–this istheart history book of choice for a new generation. Presenting a broad view of art from the early Renaissance in Europe through the Avant Garde since 1945, it sympathetically and positively introduces the works of all artists. This includes women, artists of color, and the arts of other continents and regions, as well as those of Western Europe and the United States. The new edition contains even more full-color reproductions, larger images, redrawn maps and timelines, and new photographs and higher quality images. Balancing both the traditions of art history and new trends of the present,Art Historyis the most comprehensive, accessible, and magnificently illustrated work of its kind.Broad in scope and depth, this beautifully illustrated work features art from the following time periods and places: Renaissance art; Baroque art; art of the Pacific cultures; the rise of modern art; and the international Avant-Garde since 1945.An excellent reference work and beautiful edition for any visual artist.
