"The scope and depth are unparalleled, " raved Midwest Journal when Marilyn Stokstad's Art History appeared in 1995. Booklist wrote: "Stokstad's sense of the grand continuity of art through time and across oceans make this an exceptional, thoroughly enjoyable survey."Now this landmark work, with its unique perspective on art in the context of the period in which it was created, is thoroughly revised and updated with heavily reworked sections on the Renaissance and Baroque periods and on Modern art. The exciting changes also include: a completely new design providing greater clarity in the narrative and boxed materials; larger illustrations with a greater proportion in full color; and hundreds of new pictures including recently restored artworks and monuments.With its fine cloth binding and slipcase, this authoritative family reference on world art and culture is a luxurious and significant addition to any home library.

Review: Art History, Volume II [with CD-ROM]

User Review  - Daniel - Goodreads

okay for a first intro , lacking in technical details a lot of the time I guess. Should re-read the 2nd last chapter in the near future. Read full review

User Review  - Melanie - Goodreads

Didn't read EVERY page as some periods interest me more than others, etc. Very organized and concise and the pictures are well done on the digital version. (Love that you can zoom in on them quite nicely.) Read full review
