"Rich in ideas and illustrations...of interest to scholars and art enthusiasts alike." -- "Library Journal" Adopted at over four hundred colleges and universities since its first publication in 1994, this book has established itself as the most popular and highly regarded textbook in the field. It embraces many aspects of the new, revised art history (its attention to issues of class and gender; its critiques of racism and Eurocentrism), but it also emphasizes the remarkable vitality and subversiveness that constitute the legacy of the best nineteenth-century art. The third edition incorporates new chapters on design and architecture; increased coverage of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and Naturalism in Germany; and a new discussion of the Vienna Secession and the challenges to Academic painting in Russia. In addition to Stephen F. Eisenman, the contributors are Thomas Crow, Brian Lukacher, Linda Nochlin, David Llewellyn Phillips, and Frances K. Pohl. 496 illustrations, 193 in color.Eisenman, Stephen F. is the author of 'Nineteenth Century Art ', published 2007 under ISBN 9780500286500 and ISBN 0500286507.
