Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Throughout the previous six editions, this text has earned a reputation for elegance and the highest standards of quality. Living with Art helps students develop an appreciation of art by offering a clear and comprehensive introduction to the visual arts from several perspectives: themes and purposes of art; the vocabulary of art; individual art media (painting, drawing, camera arts, sculpture, architecture, etc.); and the history of art. The book is rich with illustrations drawn from a wide range of artistic cultures and time periods.

About the Author

It is with a deeprespect that Mark Getlein undertakes the work of revising Gilbert's Living with Art. The challenge in his work has been to retain the style, wit, and clarity of Ms Gilbert's voice, while recognizing the important changes in the art world since the publication of the fifth edition in 1997.Like Ms Gilbert, Mr. Getlein brings to the effort a wealth of experience in art publishing to the task - as a contributor to the fifth edition of Preble's Artforms and as a contributing author and developer on the first edition of Marilyn Stokstad's Art History where he developed the chapters on India, China, Japan, and Africa and authored many of the boxes and captions that integrate the images into broader cultural and artistic context.Mark is currently developing A History of Art in Africa for Abrams and The Longman Anthology of World Literature for HarperCollins.
