This book outlines and categorizes centuries of artists and their work in a way that allows the student to flow from one topic to the next.read more
I enjoyed how many examples of work were provided for each topic covered and included numerous artists from different points in time that contributed to, adopted, or adapted to the topic.
How weak my arms were. This book is really heavy, but it compensated for that by being very thorough.read more
In terms of content, it's actually a very good textbook. Very in depth, thorough, and in chronological order from what I can tell.
What I enjoyed about it was the way the layout and the words that were used in the chapters. I could tell it was for college but the wording was not something incomprehensible.read more
Again, the wording is what really helped and of course the amazing prints for the images that were provided.
I definitely learned the historical facts behind artwork from all around the world, and the facts were not just historical but interesting as well. I do think that all the information I retained from this book will eventually be useful because I am fascinated by the history behind the arts and I plan to work as a gallery owner at some point. Very good book.read more
This explained everything very clearly, and the answers for the odd homework problems are listed in the back. If I could change one thing, I would explain chapter eight more clearly. I did not feel like I understood the concepts of line and slope very well afterwards, but all other chapters I felt were explained well.
Nothing had many beautiful pictures and was very clear and an easy readread more
Art of history course At woodland community college was focused on architecture and the history of art
Every aspect of the book was great. It was divided by different art movements and explains which artists and paintings contributed to them.read more
I learned a lot. I learned in depth synopsises about paintings and other works of art.
