History of Art: The Western Tradition
For forty years, this widely acclaimed classic has remained unsurpassed as an introduction to art in the Western world, boasting the matchless credibility of the Janson name. This newest update features a more contemporary, more colorful design and vast array of extraordinarily produced illustrations that have become the Janson hallmark.
A narrative voice makes this book a truly enjoyable read, and carefully reviewed and revised updates to this edition offer the utmost clarity in contributions based on recent scholarship. Extensive captions for the bookas incredible art program offer profound insight through the eyes of twentieth-century art historians speaking about specific pieces of art featured throughout.
Significantly changed in this edition is the chapter on aThe Late Renaissance,a in which Janson offers a new perspective on the subject, tracing in detail the religious art tied to the Catholic Reform movement, whose early history is little known to many readers of art history. Janson has also rearranged early Renaissance art according to genres instead of time sequence, and he has followed the reinterpretation of Etruscan art begun in recent years by German and English art historians.
With a truly humanist approach, this book gives written and visual meaning to the captivating story of what artists have tried to expressaand whyafor more than 30,000 years.
