Summary:Art History is a generous, inclusive narrative of the entire sweep of the history of art written for the millions of people for whom a general knowledge of history, religion, philosophy in short, the cultural matrices of societies and civilizations cannot be assumed. This great survey puts the arts of the world in context, defines and illustrates terminology, while keeping the focus on the works of arts themselves. Heavily illustrated and handsomely redesigned and furnished with interesting and enriching boxed material, the Second Edition has heavily reworked sections on the Renaissance and Baroque periods in the West and on modern art, beginning in the late nineteenth century.
