Lots of interesting things. Cannot narrow it down to one. Lots of interesting information to learn about art history in this book.read more
The photos helped a lot in getting familiar with artworks as well as key words in bold print. I was not a fan of the text to speech option of MyArtsLab (not included), because the narrators had accents and speech impediments which made it difficult to understand what they were saying.
Seeing the many different pieces of ancient art and where they were actually found was enjoyable. I liked that the information was in depth and really helped me in my class.read more
I thought the book was easy to navigate, and the information was direct and clear. I have no suggestions to improve it.
There was a lot of background information about most of the pictures. Learning about the artists and seeing the bright, colorful, and unique works of art all at the palm of my hand made learning about art history that much easier.read more
I've only read other volumes of this book. All of the volumes so far are helpful and worth your time.
as an artist i am a visual learner and the photographs along with description and articles relating to them was very helpfulread more
i learned that the greeks and romans believed in moderation which is a great way to view life. i also learned a lot about all the different religions and where they originated from.
This book made me love art history. I almost changed my major after this class because this book was so easy to understand.read more
The most useful thing I learned from this book is how closely early art and spirituality are related.
Each chapter was incredibly long and comprised of small font.read more
This class was a very difficult class because it required 10+ hours a week to read the chapters (which are 25 pages, with small print) in addition to printing and reading handouts/articles posted online. The book was perfect for skimming, not literal translation.
